PLANS to turn two large Honley houses into flats and homes have angered residents.
People living in Northgate, near Honley railway station, are campaigning against the plans for Knowl House and Broomhill.
They fear increased traffic, loss of mature trees and a footpath if the development goes ahead.
Plans have been submitted to Kirklees Council by Leeds-based planning consultants Pritchard Associates for the conversion and extension of the two buildings into 36 apartments and three homes, including one pair of semi-detached houses and one detached home.
The application also includes parking for 58 cars.
The plans are due to be discussed at a planning committee meeting on October 19.
Campaigner Martin Dyson of Station Road said objectors had several concerns.
"This development would change the entire aspect of the area. There would be increased traffic, the demise of the buildings themselves, the removal of mature trees and possible loss of a footpath," he said.
Mr Dyson said the campaign was gathering momentum with meetings with a local councillor and planning officer.
Letters of objection had already been sent, he said.
A spokesman from Kirklees Council's planning department confirmed there had already been several letters of objection and said the submitted plans were still being assessed.
He added that the application would be discussed at the meeting next month.
