Planning Issues

Planning applications are made all of the time and we endeavour to keep everyone informed as developments occur.

Town Hall

The wonderful Town Hall (Click here for a virtual tour) is about to have two million pounds of repairs and improvements!

Ossett Civic Trust (Our old name) have already got a blue plaque ready to be attached to the building.

"The Grade II listed Town Hall is one of Ossett's most iconic buildings and has been deservedly nominated for a real Blue Plaque. Built in 1908, the Town Hall served as a civic centre, magistrates court and offices for Ossett Borough Council until 1974 when Ossett became part of Wakefield Metropolitan District Council. The public hall has served as a concert hall, dance hall, venue for school speech days and indoor market area. Sadly, with only parts of the Town Hall in regular use, the building is now falling into disrepair. "
