Chidswell Action Group still fighting

AN ACTION group opposing a huge housing development included on Kirklees Council's Local Plan have been fundraising for their campaign. 

Members of the Chidswell Action Group raised over £100 at their weekly street stall, held near the Babes In The Wood pub at Woodkirk, on Saturday morning.

Group spokesman Mark Eastwood said: "We would like to thank local residents who turned out in their numbers to make donations and to enquire as to how they can object to the council's Local Plan.

"Their contributions have gone a long way to enabling us to present our case to the planning inspector, with the aid and expertise of a professional planning lawyer.

"We believe this will give us the best chance of once again defeating Kirklees Council in their attempts to allocate large swathes of green belt and farmland for development in the area."

The group will be holding their stall every Saturday until December 3.
