THE builders are moving on to Lindley Moor.
Protesters who fought a long campaign to halt development on the Huddersfield hillside have conceded defeat.
They accept that work is to start shortly on the first of almost 300 homes.
Developers won planning permission last year to build the homes on fields next to the M62 following years of protest.
Contractors have been moving equipment on to the site bounded by Cowrakes Road and Weatherhill Road.
Local residents have received letters from Miller Homes spelling out when the work will be done.
