A YOUTH group looks set for disappointment over its plans for an area of disused land in Emley.
Yeast - Young Emley Action Sport Team - will have its application for a multi use games area, off Upper Lane, Beaumont Street turned down by planners at a meeting on Thursday.
The team has carried out a feasbility study in the village for the past three years canvassing people's views and considering options on how to use the area of derelict land for activities for young people.
More than 100 votes have been counted with the majority in favour of a multi court games area.
The application is supported by the Denby Dale Area Committee and Clr Jim Dodds.
But a report due to be presented to the heavy woollen area planning sub committee on Thursday says the site is close to homes in Wentworth Avenue who would be affected by noise from activities on the games area.
Kirklees Highways has also expressed concerns about the inadequate access to the site.
Neighbouring Emley AFC has also written to planners objecting to the plans because of a loss of parking currently enjoyed by the club.
But the owners of the site, The Trustees of Emley Moor Miners Recreation Ground and Institute has written supporting the application.
It says the area was designated for recreational use for the people of Emley since it was purchased in 1955.
