The Council would like comments on these and other policies in the Local Plan to make sure that future developments in Calderdale are sustainable and in keeping with the character of local communities.

    I totally disagree with building on Green Belt land. Everyone needs green space around them. If these plans go ahead Rastrick will be one huge estate.
