The Local Development Plan for Calderdale could still have a serious impact on birding sites in our area.
The biggest housing site proposed is on the green fields between Jay House Lane and Wellholme Park, Brighouse (2000 houses).
The Woodhouse area of farmland next to Bradley Woods is also targeted.
As if our farmland and woodland species didn't have a tough enough time already !
Lots of other sites can be found either on the following website -
www.calderdale.gov.uk/local plan or in the local libraries.
Objections can be made online (after registering) or on proforma sheets in the library.
Some other areas that I spotted include -
Land near Ovenden Wood Road.
Hays Lane Mixenden.
School Lane Bradshaw (a big site).
Near West End Golf Club.
Saddleworth Road Greetland.
Exley Lane Elland.
Freeman's Wood Brighouse.
Shelf - lots of sites.
Westercroft Lane Northowram.
It's quite a tedious job working through the details, and objections have to be in by the end of the month.
Good Luck !
