Plans for a controversial hostel for homeless people, based in West Vale, have been withdrawn at the 11th hour.

The proposal, from The Ashley Foundation, was due up for discussion at a Calderdale Council Planning Committee meeting this evening.

The plans for a 32-bedroom hostel at the The Old Brassworks, Maude Street, West Vale, have been withdrawn by the foundation.

More than a thousand people signed up to a Facebook group online showing their displeasure at the plans and it seems their voices have been heard following this u-turn.
