The first election of Parish Councillors was held in May 2007.

The Council is made up of 7 volunteer Parish Councillors who are committed to working for a better Harden, with the assistance of our Clerk. Details of your local Parish Councillors can be found here. Please do not hesitate to get in touch!


What the Council does

Like other local councils, Harden Parish Council aims to work towards improving community well-being and providing better services at a local level. Our activities involve: –

  • representing the local community
  • working to improve quality of life and community well-being

The Parish Council is a formal body that has to conform to specific procedures and be publicly accountable.

Councillors attend council meetings to discuss and make decisions about the work of the Council. They also meet local organisations and individual residents to address specific issues, and represent the parish on external bodies.

Local (Town and Parish) Councils form the first tier of local government, Harden Parish Council does not replace the statutory responsibilities of Bradford MDC. If you have a query regarding issues such as housing, bin collections, flytipping, blocked drains, Council tax, street lights, road maintenance or education, please contact Bradford Metropolitan District Council on 01274 432111 or report your concern on BMDC’s website at www.bradford.gov.uk.

Harden Parish Council meets on a monthly basis. Meetings are held in public, and any member of the public is welcome to attend as an observer. A short period is set aside on the agenda for questions or observations from members of the public.
