NEIGHBOURS have been angered after soil and debris from a nearby building site seeped into their gardens.
Residents say they have suffered more than two months of problems at Brian Street, Lindley.
More than 150 new homes are being built by developers Bovis on the site of a former Yorkshire Electricity depot.
Local Conservative councillor Tony Brice explained: "It all started when they ripped vegetation down, leaving loose soil and scree.
"Because it's on a slope, it washes down into the gardens when there's heavy rain.
"People are trampling it into the house and are worried that water might be seeping into the underparts of their homes."
He said Bovis had talked about putting a drain in, but the offer was not good enough.
"What is needed is either a low wall or a trench with a pipe to drain everything away," said Clr Brice.
Bovis is building 155 homes with prices ranging from £178,000 to £350,000.
Company bosses say the problem is long-standing and there were complaints when the site was in use by Yorkshire Electricity.
David Durling, Bovis Homes northern region managing director, said: "We are going to put in a cut-off trench so that water goes into it and is channelled to our surface drainage.
"Unfortunately, it is not an overnight job and has to be engineered properly, but we are working to put it in place as soon as possible."
