Clr Pinnock criticised opponents of the new framework.
She said: “A lot of the so-called information from them has been extraordinarily misleading. I saw one of their leaflets which claimed that all the new homes in the Colne Valley would be built on the green belt.”
THE plan for 28,000 new homes is not welcomed by Greens.
Clr Andrew Cooper, who leads the four-strong opposition Green group on Kirklees, believes 28,000 new houses is too high a figure.
The Newsome man said: “It’s going to be difficult to deliver that number of homes without affecting green fields and the green belt.
“The impact of that will be felt by everyone.”
Clr Cooper added: “We’re particularly concerned to protect the land below Castle Hill from development. “It’s an area of huge historic significance to the people of Huddersfield.”
Clr Cooper believes the LDF is too narrowly focussed on homes and jobs.
He said: “It should be about quality of life, transport and the value of our landscape. The LDF should be about ensuring that we don’t just have jobs and homes, but that we also have places we enjoy working in.
“I’m disappointed that the LDF doesn’t reflect that.”
