Leeds Festival A Great Success!!

Bramham Parish Council

Once again the village enjoyed a fabulous festival and this year the weather was much kinder to us and remained mostly dry and some sunshine. Thank you to all residents for your positive feedback about the weekend. 

The weekend guest tickets at a discounted price of £42 to include access to the festival guest area for entertainment and camping and shuttle bus is a real privilege. The village of Bramham is most grateful to Melvin Benn from Festival Republic for providing us with the tickets and Bramham Parish Council for the organisation.

As a result of the ticket sales the village raises in the region of £25k that is put into a Community Fund. This fund is chaired by Nick and Rachel Lane Fox who together with a committee allocate the funds to village projects.

Nick Lane Fox is to be invited to the October Parish Council meeting to talk about how these community funds are shared amongst community groups. All residents are welcome to come along. More details to follow.

Here’s to many more years of the festival coming to Bramham!

Due to the high demand for Leeds Festival Resident Tickets this year Melvin Benn has kindly agreed to provide some additional guest tickets at the full price of £201.50.

This is the same price that the general public pay for a weekend festival ticket but allows access to the guest area of the festival for camping and the guest bar facilities. 

If you are a Bramham resident and would like to purchase one of these tickets please email Fiona.

Parish News for February

Alison Mackie

To all Bramham residents

Here is the monthly update from our February meeting….

Festival Tickets: A meeting has taken place with Festival Republic to discuss the ticket allocation for 2013 and full details of the application process will be included in the next magazine and on our website. We will be introducing some enhancements to the ticket allocations this year and we will put full details on our website as soon as all the details are finalised. Festival Republic have advised that again this year they will be ensuring the terms of their premises license will be enforced and no alcohol for personal consumption can be taken through into the Guest Area, only into the Guest Camping Area. This is a decision by the festival organisers and not a parish council decision. We will be looking again at the extended bus timetable until 3am as this was well received by residents last year.

The Precept: Leeds City Council has confirmed that because of the introduction by the Government of the new council tax support system, our 2013/14 tax base has been reduced to 712 band D equivalent properties.  Although the Parish Council has NOT asked for an increase in the precept that is currently £20,000, this will nevertheless mean a band D precept charge of £28.09. This represents a small increase on the 12/13 charge that is currently £27.32. Leeds City Council proposes to pass on funding to the parish council of £1,152 on top of, and separate to, the precept. This funding is meant to compensate parish councils for the reduction in their tax base.

Bramham Primary School: Our chairman recently spent some time at our village primary school and was made very welcome by all the children and teachers and enjoyed looking at all the wonderful work and projects that the children are engaged in. The Parish Council are keen to see the village school prosper and wants to encourage all parents considering which school for their children to attend to spend sometime at our local village school before making that decision. The Parish Council is committed to supporting the school in anyway it can in the future and is keen to establish a relationship with the teachers and head to work together on promoting this village asset.

Pavilion: We have included a separate communication with regards to the pavilion in this magazine and the article has been placed on the website Following conversations with village residents the council made a decision not to door drop every house in the village as there is no new information to share. However there is some suggestion that there were things the parish council were not telling you and we want to assure you that is not the case.  We have included this article to bring together all the information we have to hopefully clarify the current position and get rid of any misunderstandings.

Tour De France 5th and 6th July 2014: The Parish Council are looking for ideas for the village to celebrate the Tour De France coming to Yorkshire in 2014. Cycling event to include families and children, a street party, a charity bike challenge, street flags and screening of the event have all been suggested. The NSPCC are looking at a French style party on the Saturday evening in The Village Hall. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions or would like to help organise the weekends events please contact our clerk.

Neighbourhood Plan: We are still waiting for more news on the Site Allocation in the Parish. As soon as we know this we can take steps to finalise the Neighbourhood Plan. The group will be meeting in the next month or so and we can report back to the Parish in due course.

Traffic Speed Limits: Our request to Leeds City Council to reduce the speed limit by the school has been turned down on the basis of it is not a priority. We are not accepting the response and are going to be working with the school and Clifford Parish Council on a joint effort to challenge this. It has been suggested that it is the cost of the signage that is the issue as Leeds City Council do not have the funds available. The council are looking into this to understand the costs and what funds would be required to make this happen.

Old Peoples Shelter: All ideas put forward for renaming the shelter will be considered at the next Parish Meeting.

West Yorkshire Metro: We understand that ten Sunday evening journeys on the Wetherby - Leeds routes X99 and 770 are threatened. There is a petition which is currently in the Wetherby Whaler and Save The Children in Wetherby, that you may want to sign to try and stop these cuts.

Potholes, Fly Tipping, Street Lights etc! A reminder that if you notice something in the village that needs fixing you can report problems directly online at

Next Meeting: The next Council meeting will be on Wednesday 6th March, 7.30 pm at The Village Hall. Residents are welcome to join us and to talk to us about any ideas and suggestions you have to improve our village

We hope you find this update useful. If you would like to read more detailed information about items discussed the minutes of the meeting can be found on our parish notice board and on our website
