Local Plan could make life hell for residents in Rastrick

I cannot believe what the council are planning to do to our area. It is utterly appalling. They are riding roughshod over the wishes of everyone here.

Rastrick is one of the smallest wards in the whole of Calderdale and also one of the most populated.

The houses are already packed in as it is, leaving precious little green space for wildlife, there’s no parking for my husband’s carer as there are so many cars, and our roads are a mess.

I have to wait over three weeks for a GP’s appointment and my grandson is having difficulty finding a space for his son in the local schools.

Yet they want to build over 1,200 houses in Woodhouse? ‘A Garden Village?’ – a horrible mess more like!

Why can’t they build the houses in other wards where they are needed? Not here where they will just make life hell for residents.

The council have obviously decided to carry on regardless of what locals say.
