|Councillors joined campaigners on their March against 299 houses on Haigh Woods in West Ardsley|
Cllr Robert Finnigan- who attended the march and the clean-up said “It was a pleasure to join residents on a beautiful day with their campaign against the loss of this valuable Greenfield site. Morley Town Council have lodged a formal objection to this application because of its impact on schools, health centres and local roads and many residents on the march were raising similar concerns.”
The march up Haigh Moor Road was supported by the local Neighbourhood Policing Team. At West Ardsley Reservoir campaigners joined residents already undertaking a litterpick of the area.
Cllr Robert Finnigan said “West Ardsley Action Group and local residents deserve all credit for arranging these two events. It was a brilliant turnout for both events and enough rubbish was collected to fill a large skip. I have contacted Yorkshire Water – who own the reservoir – about additional litterbins and they have agreed to meet to discuss this. The march and clean-up day has been achieved because residents have worked hard with other partners to make sure both events had the support of the local community.”
