About the Council
Kippax Parish Council was established in June 2004 and is composed of 16 Councillors who represent the three wards in Kippax. Whilst the councillor roles are voluntary, the Council is an elected tier of local government. The "Parish" refers to the boundaries of Kippax that we serve. We are funded by a precept on your Council Tax but we will also generate additional income from other sources that will be invested in Kippax.
In addition to the Full Council, there is also a series of working groups and committees who focus on specific areas and projects and provide recommendations to the full council.
We are here to serve the Kippax Community and improve the local environment through delivering projects and events and liaising with Leeds City Council on matters relating to planning, highways, community facilities and much more.
We are also responsible for approving grants for projects that benefit our community. For more information see our, Community Grants page.
Where can you find out more information?
In addition to the website, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates and you will also find notice boards at various sites in the village - Co-op, Gibson Lane Community Centre, Kippax Leisure Centre, Kippax Library Leeds Rd Bus Shelter (near The Common). The Kippax Matters Magazine is also delivered to every household in the village quarterly.
When do we meet?
The Full Council meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7pm at Valley Ridge Community Centre. Press and Public are welcome to each meeting, with time on the agenda dedicated to a public forum. The Working Groups also meet regularly. For more information, see our Meetings, Minutes and Agendas page.
