Riddlesden Canalside Development 2010


YET ANOTHER  planning application on www.Bradford.gov.uk/publicaccess Numbered 11/04306/MAF if  approved will severely restrict vehicle access for Residents and make access for Puffer Parts Chandlery  in Hall Terrace extremely difficult.  If this development is approved we believe it may result in the loss of the very popular mooring Site on the Leeds Liverpool Canal as a result of NEW housowners complaining about Boat Engines and stoves. I believe that this development must be stopped. This Canal towpath AND 7 DAY MOORINGS  ARE very popular with Boaters,walkers,cyclists and Locals out for a walk and this development would seriously REDUCE not enhance the amenity value.Your help in fighting this scheme would be much appreciated.

    3 years ago Comments: This is a very important mooring site for boaters. I regularly moor there to buy items from the chandlery, Puffer Parts, and to use the pubs and shops nearby as well as to visit Riddlesden Hall. It is also very near to the mechanised swing bridge across the canal which has a history of failing regularly and boats waiting for the bridge to be repaired need somewhere to moor. Whilst it may still be possible to moor here I personally do not like to moor right outside someone's house as in my experience although people want to live next to the canal they don't necessarily like boats right outside their house and conflicts can ensue.
