In The Press this week: A campaigner believes a massive housing development in Batley will be approved even if residents object.

Habib Dadhiwala, chairman of the Soothill Community Association, spoke out after plans for up to 404 new homes near Lydgate Junior School were revealed.

His view, that protesting and petition signatures will do no good, was formed after the group failed to stop a housing plan for a former cricket field.

Elsewhere, we have a special focus on terrorism after mosque leaders in Dewsbury and Batley made strong condemnations of recent atrocities.

A row over elections to Mirfield Town Council rumbles on, with a councillor unable to take his seat seeking a by-election.

The Dewsbury care home which Kirklees were accused of shutting prematurely was found to be inadequate across all areas by inspectors.

One of the town's best loved charities is relaunched today (Fri) with a new name and more staff so it can do more of the work it is famous for with disable people.

And read about the multi-million revamp for Mirfield Railway Station. It's all in The Press, the only newspaper which has North Kirklees covered.
