Sandy Lane is a traditional English village, including a primary school, church, pub and park. It has been a small village since it was founded - until the 1990s, when a series of new developments were built to accommodate the increasing population of Bradford. Residents in the village, upset with the plans, formed their own opposition group and subsequently voted for a parish council.

A parish council is the first tier of local government; therefore it provides the most local level of community voice.

Sandy Lane Parish Council has thus been in existence since 2003, and Parish Councillors are elected by local people every 4 years. The current members of Sandy Lane Parish Council have been in office since the elections in May 2019 and will stand for re-election in 2023.

The Parish Council hold monthly meetings to discuss issues of local importance and work with residents to understand community needs.
