About Us

The Clifton Village Neighourhood Forum (CVNF) was formed to create a neighbourhood plan for Clifton Village.

Our initial application included the hamlet of Thornhills, but Calderdale Council (following an objection by a developer) refused our request and so we had to re-apply in May 2018 with amended boundaries. The application was granted on 1 August 2018 https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/v2/residents/environment-planning-and-building/planning/planning-policy/NDPs#clifton

The CVNF is a voluntary organisation, we receive no official funding from Calderdale Council; our objective is to see a sustainable, deliverable plan for our village. 

We are working closely with the Clifton Village Community Association and our Local Councillors in developing our neighbourhood plan.
