Climate Change Survey 2023

Following the formation of Climate Action Addingham in 2022 one of our first actions was to carry out a village survey about climate change. We used the Addingham property register provided by Bradford Council to randomly select 200 households in the village and designed a questionnaire to be distributed by volunteers to those households. A copy of the questionnaire can be seen here. The project has now finished. The report is available here.

Bins & ButtsBins and butts

To encourage waste reduction in the village, in 2022 the Parish Council introduced a project to provide compost bins, water butts and food waste bins to residents on a first come first served basis. The scheme was over-subscribed and it has been renewed for a further year.
If you are an Addingham residents and wish to take advantage of this scheme please contact the Parish Clerk This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Restoring Mill Stream

Although Addingham’s sewage is normally pumped down to Ilkley for treatment in wet weather the Pumping Station at Low Mill frequently exceeds its capacity and discharges untreated sewage into the Mill Stream. The sewage escapes only slowly into the Wharfe as it is backed up by the narrow culvert under Old Lane close to the junction with the Old Ilkley Road. Although this is currently permitted by the Environment Agency the permit needs urgent review. Sewage sludge has accumulated in the Mill Stream over the years and now presents a health and safety hazard. CAA is campaigning for Yorkshire Water to stop its discharges, remove the sludge and restore the stream. For further details click here.

The Wharfedale Greenway

The Wharfedale Greenway is a proposed 13 mile traffic-free route for walking, cycling and horse-riding from Pool-in-Wharfedale to Bolton Bridge via Otley, Burley, Ilkley and Addingham.
Town and Parish Councils together with Local Authorities and Sustrans are working together to plan the project.
The route is being planned in sections. The section from Ilkley to Addingham and onwards to Bolton Abbey is one of the most difficult to plan. The Parish Council is represented on the Planning Group supported by CAA. The process involves identifying route options, agreeing a preferred route, undertaking detailed route investigation, compiling all of the documents needed for a planning application, applying for planning permission, detailed design work, compiling a business case, and then applying for funding.
