​The deadline for residents to take part in the Knottingley and Ferrybridge Masterplan consultation – either online, by sending a letter, via email or by making a phone call – has been extended.

Residents can have their say by going online, where they can view the document that sets out a clear vision for how the Knottingley and Ferrybridge area will develop and grow. They can leave a comment by writing a letter, sending an email or making a phone call to share their views.

​Cllr Darren Byford, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth and Regeneration at Wakefield Council, said: “I’m pleased that we have been able to extend the deadline for this consultation to allow as many residents as possible to share their thoughts and ideas. I would urge everyone to take a look at the plans for the future of Knottingley and Ferrybridge.

“We are very ambitious for all our towns in the district and as we plan for the economic recovery of our district from coronavirus, please get involved, let us know your thoughts on the Masterplan with its focus on the growth and development for the area.”

The Masterplan sets out the future of the town centre, residential and business land uses. Delivery of the Masterplan will be very much a partnership approach with the Council, developers and partner organisations all working together to ensure significant private sector investment happens and much needed employment opportunities materialise.

Plans are now online and people can fill out an online questionnaire or download a copy at before 31 October at 5pm.

Or they can contact with any comments or call 0113 426 8080 and leave your contact details for a call back. 

Or people can use Freepost to send their comments to: The Citizen, Room 12a Town Hall, Wood Street, FREEPOST RTKZ-KJRX-ETXE, Wakefield, WF1 2HQ

Feedback from the consultation process will be used to produce the final Masterplan which will be considered by councillors this winter.
