Protestors against Kirklees Council’s Local Plan spent the final hours of the public consultation rallying up more objections.

The chance to comment on the council’s blueprint for offering land for homes, offices and industrial buildings closed at 5pm on Monday.

The masterplan, first published last September, will form the council’s strategy for regeneration and development until 2030.

But a host of controversial land plots have been earmarked for development, including the whole of Bradley Park Golf Course and large green belt plots at Clayton West and Chidswell, Dewsbury.

The proposal to create Farnley Country Park has also drawn fierce opposition, including from Game of Thrones star Lena Headey, who was brought up in the area.

Campaign groups and councillors continued to raise awareness and encourage comments on the official Local Plan website right up to the final hours of the public consultation.

Is is thought that more than 700 objections were lodged against the golf course plan alone.

More than 300 comments, mostly objections, have been submitted about the Farnley Country Park plan.

But only 11 comments were lodged about plans to build up to 4,000 homes on the border of Ravensthorpe, Mirfield and Thornhill Lees, some of which is green belt land.

Just 13 comments have been submitted about plans to build more than 1,500 homes on green belt at Chidswell, Dewsbury.

Only one comment was lodged about a plan to create new park space linking Mirfield to Dewsbury along the river.

The number of emails and letters for each of the above is not yet known.

Council officials will now read through thousands of comments, mostly objections, and decide whether to keep or reject the proposed sites.

Some sites that were initially rejected could also be re-appear following lobbying from land owners.

A final draft will be published later in the year which will also be open to comments.

That will be reviewed by the government before being formally adopted in early 2018.

A council spokesperson said: “We are very pleased with the level of response on the draft Local Plan consultation.

“We have received several thousand comments, with many local residents and key organisations taking the opportunity to comment online, by email and by post.

“Due to the level of participation and engagement it may take some time for us to fully process and acknowledge all the comments received.

“We will take all the comments received into account in preparing the next stage of the Local Plan.”
