Ask Burton – get involved

Look out for members of Kirkburton and Highburton Community Association, Kirkburton ward councillors and council staff, who will be talking with people in ‘Burton in June 2022. We’re aiming to find out what citizens think of life in the area. We’re really keen to hear from you.

Ask Burton is encouraging people to think about their unique local place and share their experiences and ideas for the future. You can tell us about anything that matters to you about life in Kirkburton and Highburton.

To do this, we’ll be using a tool called the Place Standard. This is a way of helping to get conversations going about any place (it could be your street, neighbourhood or town), by using some simple questions.

The activities in ‘Burton are running from 4th June to 25th June 2022, starting at the Kirkburton Beer Festival.

The more people who take part, the more we will all learn about what really matters to people in the area. Citizens can take part online, but council staff and volunteers will also be out and about in ‘Burton and running drop in sessions at Kirkburton Library.

Kirkburton and Highburton Community Association and Kirkburton ward councillors hope the results will give a voice to local citizens and encourage more people to get involved in shaping the future of their local place.
