THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 754

This week in The Press, read about the changing political landscape in North Kirklees as big changes to constituencies are proposed.

The Boundary Commission have this week published their initial proposals which, if given the go-ahead, will see the current Batley and Spen seat carved up, with Batley set to join Morley and a 'Spen' seat created.

A date has now been set for the Batley and Spen by-election, with voters going to the polls on October 20.

Also in this week's Press, residents in White Lee have hit out at a proposed planning application that if given the go-ahead could see up to 200 homes built on green fields.

A Dewsbury market trader has had his say on what is needed to revamp the dwindling market and protestors make last-ditch pleas to Kirklees Council to keep Dewsbury Museum and Red Hall open.

In sport, Batley boss John Kear was this week crowned Kingstone Press Championship Coach of the Year following the Bulldogs’ impressive performances this season.

Dewsbury Rams need a point from Sunday’s home clash with Oldham to secure a place in the Kingstone Press Championship Shield play-offs.

It's all in The Press, the only news outlet that has North Kirklees covered.
