A VILLAGE'S peace will be shattered when tipping begins at a former quarry site, it is claimed.
Lorries will carry soil from building sites to Dunford Road, Hade Edge.
A protest by villagers failed to stop planning permission being given for the work.
Villager Paul Holt said: "We are not used to vehicles or noise in Hade Edge."
Tipping by builders Conroy Brook is expected to last six to eight weeks.
The former quarry - last in use 50 years ago - will be restored to its original contours.
Eight-five objections were received by Kirklees Council, together with a petition containing 112 names.
Sarah Wilkinson, who lives near the site, said: "This will totally and utterly spoil the landscape."
Planning approval was given on the casting vote of chairman Clr Annie Smith after a six-six vote at the council's area planning committee.
She said: "To my mind, this is going to be an improvement.
"It is going to make the site a whole lot safer, although there will be some disturbance for a while."
Tory councillor Donald Firth said: "Dunford Road cannot take the amount of traffic proposed."
