THE possible closure of a Scissett care home came under the spotlight at Denby Dale Parish Council's meeting.
Councillors were concerned at the news that Scissett Mount is subject to a Kirklees Council review because it does not meet new standards and regulations.
Clr Terry Sigsworth said he hoped Kirklees would look positively at the situation and choose to upgrade the facilities.
He added: "The residents are special residents with special needs.
"They are used to being where they are and the people who care for them are there.
"The homes under review are essential facilities for an ageing population."
Clr Graham Turner said: "We should write to Kirklees asking them to keep the home open for people in this area, and for future residents of this area, as the population gets older."
Council chairman Clr Robert Allen will write to Kirklees asking for the assistant director of social services to come to June's parish meeting.
The purpose of the visit would be to discuss the proposals and intentions for the care homes under review.
The options for the homes - which include Cherry Tree Court at Shepley - are refurbishment, rebuilding, redeveloping for sheltered housing with on-site care support, switching to other uses, such as day care, or selling the sites and using the money to reinvest in improving care services.
