Retirement village rejected

DEVELOPERS have been frustrated in their latest attempt to put homes on the former Monoplas factory site at Sunny Vale, Hipperholme.

Calderdale Council rejected plans by Blackshaw Holdings for a retirement village, including 96 apartments and a 60-bed care home, because of the impact on the green belt.

Sunny Vale Residents’ Association opposed the scheme, saying it could triple the population of the area.
