A LONG-awaited masterplan for Silsden will move a step closer this week when Keighley MP John Grogan meets local councillors. Mr Grogan is the latest politician to call for overarching strategy to help the town meet the challenges of massive housebuilding, overcrowded schools and pressure on local services. He will chair a meeting on Friday, June 1 with town and district councillors and public bodies. Mr Grogan said: “The problem at the moment is that there are a whole load of piecemeal developments going on in Silsden with none of them big enough to provide the funds necessary for new infrastructure including roads.
