PLANNERS are to visit the site of a disused railway cutting in Mirfield - used for years as a dump for building waste.
An application to level the area off Wood Lane, Battyeford, add top soil and turn it into a grassy area has been received by Kirklees Council.
But Mirfield councillor Martyn Bolt has raised a number of questions about the application.
"In the past many complaints have been made to Kirklees Council and effective action wasn't taken by them which has led to masses of rubble," he said.
He said mistakes made in the past were going to be swept under the carpet.
Members of the Huddersfield and Heavy Woollen Area planning committees go to the site on Tuesday.
The applicant, Stephen Douthwite, agreed to submit a planning application in the light of complaints about the tipping of building waste and `regularise' unlawful tipping.
But Clr Bolt says that effectively condones the tipping which has taken place over the past three years.
The proposed development would remove a steep slope into the cutting.
Mirfield Town Council have objected to the application on a number of grounds including the fact no end use for the land has been put forward.
The officer's report says access would be better for any future path or cycleways.
