I BELIEVE there should be at least one more meeting about the Local Development Framework. A lot of people did not know of this meeting, people who fought and won the battle of the open cast will now want to stop this huge development.
The plans to build big warehouses, plus 200, or it could be 700, homes, affects all of us. No voting should take place with councillors until all the people involved have had a chance to air their views.
We want another meeting in a month’s time. This time councillors, please let us know two weeks before, with leaflets, not two days. Let’s have the next meeting at Dewsbury Rams, not at the church hall. There won’t be 40 people next time, it will be over 400.
