VILLAGERS are objecting to new plans to build 20 houses in a beauty spot near Denby Dale's railway viaduct.
They are relaunching the campaign they thought they had won when earlier proposals were withdrawn.
Protester Julia Earle, of Wakefield Road, said: "Denby Dale is famous for the viaduct rising above the open ground by the river.
"Now these property speculators are trying again to cover this greenfield site with houses and ruin the view which gives our village its character."
Mill firm Z Hinchliffe and Sons has tabled the application to revive the scheme at Bank Lane.
The campaigners are asking villagers to object, saying the site is a haven for wildlife.
A spokesman for Heppenstall Architects, agents for the scheme, said outline planning permissions had been granted for housing in the past.
About two-thirds of the site was previously developed land, he said.
He added: "The previous scheme was withdrawn to allow a redesign to take place, in order to address concerns expressed by residents and the council.
"Specialist reports have been commissioned into all environmental issues and the ecology of the site. These recommendations are incorporated into the new scheme," he said.
