  • Road Safety - the request for a pedestrian crossing on Wakefield Road is still ongoing.  The outstanding request for a site visit with representatives from Wakefield Council will be chased up.
  • The Parish Council approved the following statement:  "Ackworth Parish Council is opposed to any plans to build houses on greenbelt land and to any plans to build a road that encroaches on Hessle and on Brackenhill Common.  We are opposed to any local development that will result in a significant increase in traffic movement through Ackworth."
