Motorists in Mytholmroyd have been given a second reprieve after Calderdale Council’s ruling Labour group decided to suspend parking charges at its Burnley Road car park.

The Council’s new Labour administration has announced it will lead moves for a long-term, ambitious strategy for Mytholmroyd, which drives economic development and enterprise in the village and will meet with key political figures, business owners and residents to discuss a way forward.

Pending this work, Labour councillors have decided, once more, to postpone the introduction of parking charges at the White Lion car park, next to Russell Dean’s.

Coun Barry Collins, deputy leader of the council, said: “The Ambition for Mytholmroyd summit will be held on Tuesday, September 24, at St Michael’s Church, and will include representatives from every corner of the community, all working together with the shared aspiration to breathe new life into the historic village.”
