It was a case of a new broom sweeping clean on the 2nd May when 3 out of the 4 parish councillors elected for Kirkheaton were new.

Councillor Pam Brook [Liberal] retained her seat and she was joined by Roger Battye [previously a  Liberal parish and ward councillor] and two members of the Green Party – Clare Walters and  Simon Duffy. We wish them all well.

Muss Khan retained her ward seat for the Labour party.
