PROTESTERS are gearing up to fight plans for a business park.
Up to 3,500 jobs could be created at the 61-acre industrial and leisure complex in Clifton, Brighouse.
But it would mean building on Green Belt land. Objectors say it would be a huge blot near their homes.
They also say roads in Brighouse would gridlock at peak times because of the extra traffic.
Colin Grunstein, chairman of Clifton Action Group, said: "We will fight the proposals all the way. We believe the whole of Brighouse will support us when it is realised what traffic chaos it will bring to the whole of the area."
A public meeting will be held once a formal planning application has been submitted.
The site off Wakefield Road, near the Holiday Inn and Coal Pit Lane, was first earmarked for a trade park in 1990.
Premier Property Group Land, which has unveiled the latest proposals, said the site had the potential to attract major employers to Brighouse.
