ELDERLY Shelley residents today pleaded: Let us stay in our homes.
They are angry about Kirklees Council plans that could lead to them being moved from their one-bedroomed homes.
Residents at the six council-owned bungalows in Westerley Close say they want to stay in their homes.
The bungalows are under review by Kirklees Council because they do not meet the Decent Homes Standard set by the Government.
The standard requires homes to have modern facilities, be in good repair, safe, weatherproof, effectively insulated and efficiently heated.
But the Shelley residents, who have enlisted the support of local councillors and tenants' groups, are adamant the homes are fine.
The options included in the review are to bring the bungalows up to the standard, leave them as they are, sell them to a landlord or sell them to a developer.
Neil Machin, 60, has lived in his bungalow for 10 years.
He said the other five Westerley Close tenants were women and mostly pensioners.
Mr Machin said: "We are settled here. None of us want to move. We don't need this stress at our age."
Mr Machin said he and his neighbours were worried about where they might be re-homed.
He suspected the bungalows would be sold to a developer because they were next to a recreation ground and would be a prime site.
"Next to that recreation site is a cricket ground, which has just got permission for extensions and a football pitch," he said. "So the recreation ground here will no longer be needed."
Mr Machin has also sought help from the Shelley Tenants' and Residents' Association.
A spokeswoman for Kirklees Council's housing department said the review was in its very early stages.
No decisions had been made. All residents affected would be consulted for their views.
