The Alliance now has 9 members, the ninth being Shipley Town Council which has unanimously voted to join us. That’s not so surprising as the Town Council has already made known their serious concerns about the impact of a new road from Bradford to Shipley on air quality and safety in Shipley itself. Thank you, Councillors.

The plan is for this Alliance to be a broad discussion forum with the objective of presenting (and campaigning on) common concerns, to Bradford Council and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority that are planning and funding a major road scheme which will affect Manningham, Bolton Woods, Shipley, Sataire, Bingley and other areas on the route.
In its present form the Scheme could have a major detrimental impact on the whole area between Bradford and Bingley, although the proposals also have positive aspects.
We anticipate that a cross section of community, business and political representatives will join the Alliance to best represent local residents.
The Alliance was launched early in 2021 and has gained affiliation from many local environmental, community and other organisations which together with active individuals decide how we operate and what we do. We are not affiliated to any party political organisation. One priority is to seek meetings with Bradford Council’s transport and environmental officers and collaborate with them in making the most of the investment in transport to improve health and address the climate emergency.
