Sandy Lane has been a small village since it was founded until the 1990s when a series of new developments were built to accommodate the burgeoning Bradford population. However residents in the village were upset with the plans and formed their own opposition group and subsequently voted for a parish council in 2003.
It is a traditional English village including a primary school, church, pub and park.
