We have just published an interim Progress Report. The campaign has got off to a strong start and has collected 35% of the signatures we will need; it is rare to meet someone in Shipley who has not heard of the campaign. Feedback, both online and face to face, has in the main been strongly positive and we remain convinced that there is real appetite for Shipley to have its own Town Council.
We will now be working to reinvigorate the campaign to secure the remaining signatures and will consult with BMDC on the potential to carry out a governance review ahead of this as proposed to us by the Minister for Local Government.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us to get to this stage – we look forward to your support over the next period!
