CONTROVERSIAL plans submitted by a Mirfield school to fund a sports centre by selling some land for housing hit another delay yesterday.
Castle Hall School wants to build a new sports hall and all-weather pitch by selling off a section of playing fields for 30 homes.
But protesters who packed into the planning committee room in Dewsbury Town Hall yesterday were told an additional report drawn up at the last minute by the applicant would have to be studied in some depth by Kirklees Council officers.
The 15-page report covers highway issues.
Protesters and committee members voiced their displeasure.
Clr Karam Hussain said: "I'm not satisfied with this because it's the second time of asking it's been deferred.
His words were echoed by Clr Adrian Murphy. He said time had been needlessly wasted.
He said: "Yet again they are totally out of order and I think they should be given a final date for final submission."
Mr Norman Bridgestock spoke on behalf of the protesters.
He said: "The ploy of just keeping putting information in at the very last minute is just playing the game."
Kirklees Council has received 736 letters from members of the public about the school's plans.
