Ward councillor Sue Holdsworth (Lib Dem, Greetland and Stainland) said interested parties were meeting with one of Calderdale Council’s highways officers to discuss where the best pace might be to site a crossing.

Coun Holdsworth said: “I have a petition that was instigated by Mr Sigh at the Nisa shop on Rochdale Road for a zebra crossing to be installed following a young child being knocked down running between the nusrsery at Cross Hills Methodist Church and the shop.

“I am pleased to say i have a petition here from a large number of residents supporting this.”
