Calderdale Local Plan – our response
CPRE has just submitted its response to the Initial Draft of the new Calderdale Local Plan.
The Plan envisages almost 17,000 new homes being built by 2033, of which 70% would be in the Green Belt. This will have particular impact on the Brighouse and Rastrick area, where two ‘Garden Suburbs’ are propsoed close to the M1 motorway; and also at Northowram and Shelf, which would effectively cause the coalescence of Halifax and Bradford.
