THE Easter Fair will go ahead on the St Andrew's Road site - if one final safety check is passed.
Fair organisers the Yorkshire Showman's Guild have agreed to place all the heavier rides away from the areas Kirklees Council safety officers thought were dangerous and could collapse.
Now they are to carry out one more test to make sure the public will be 100% safe.
A roller machine will be used on the car park, where the fair has been held for the last three years, to vibrate the ground.
Guild chairman Marshall Waddington said he was confi- dent the fair would go ahead.
"I am 90% certain the fair will be held at the St Andrew's Road site, but I am 100% certain that site is safe," he said.
"We are going to run a roller machine over the site just to make sure, but I know everything will be fine."
A race against time to find a new site for the fair began last month when safety officials said it had to move because they feared cellars under the car park, next to Holset Engineering, could collapse.
Plans to hold the fair at Fartown cricket ground were tabled, but there were protests from people who lived nearby.
Now it has been agreed the original site is safe as long as the weight of the rides is not over the cellars.
Mr Waddington said the fair, which has visited Huddersfield at Easter for more than half a century, has to be held.
"The fair has to go ahead and from the very beginning we were determined to get it on."
A Kirklees leisure services spokesman said: " We are hoping to be able to announce a final decision within the next week."
