Listening to East Bierley

How do you feel about where you live?

We’d like to ask you some questions about what life in East Bierley village is like. We’re looking for your views. We know that people make great places, so we’d like to ask how you feel about being here. We would have loved to ask you in person, but with the current situation being as it is, we want to respect social distancing measures and not put anyone at risk.

East Bierley Village Preservation Society and the Birstall and Birkenshaw councillors are working together to find out what really matters to you in East Bierley. You can take part now, then find out the results later in the year.

Where: East Bierley village
from 5th to 31st October 2020

Organised by East Bierley Village Preservation Society and local councillors, supported by Kirklees Council

How to take part

The quickest and easiest way to take part is to complete our questionnaire online.

Take part online

Take part by post

We’ve posted a letter and a printed copy of our questionnaire to all households in East Bierley, along with a freepost return envelope. You will receive our letter in the first week of October 2020.

What will happen next?

Kirklees Council will help to analyse what everyone has told us. We’ll then share the results, both in East Bierley and online. The East Bierley Village Preservation Society and local councillors will use what we learn to help create an action plan and to apply for funding for our area. We expect to be able to share what we learn later this year.
