By clicking on the link below to the Village Design Statement, new Residents may wish to learn more about Bardsey’s heritage, day to day village life, landscapes, the Built Environment, traffic and transport issues and aspirations for the future.
The Village Design Statement was published in Spring 2002 and the Parish Plan December 2003. Some of the aspirations contained in the document have by now been fulfilled. However it should be noted that a Neighbourhood Plan is in the course of preparation for an expected ratification in 2015 and this Plan will by and large generally supersede the Village Design Statement.
Bardsey is well connected to both Wetherby and Leeds by a regular bus service, X98/X99, the timetable for which may be viewed by clicking on the following link
