We believe that land currently registered as Provisional Open Land, off New Laithe Hill, nr Newsome, is a very valuable asset for many within the Huddersfield area. This land is a well known tourist landscape, being part of the heavily photographed footprint of Castle Hill. The land is currently leased as farming land, and we believe that good quality farming land is in short supply and should be protected. We urge Kirklees Council to re-designate this land as Green Belt, and to ensure it is kept undeveloped for the benefit of future generations.
