    Well, that’s certainly good news isn’t it. Even as I was reading it, I was thinking; where’s the catch? And then, groan:

    ““None of this is cast in stone,” he said. “It will have to go out for public consultation which will have to be run fairly.”

    “Right lads, back to the drawing board; Mrs Miggins doesn’t want her view of the Dales to be marred.”

    Not much chance of that in Dewsbury!

    Balls, Mr G, I was banking on there being no Northerners knocking-about.

    Still, don’t let my woeful geography get in the way of a pithy one-liner…

    I’m near to the Ainley top development. To be fair over the last few years there haven’t been huge numbers built. But that’s due to the fact that all projects were either shut down or temporarily delayed until things picked up again, so there are still a number of house/flats with the potential to be finished. Anyone who lives around this area will know about the Lindley Moor saga. I just hope they don’t mean Lindley Moor when they mention Ainley Top as they are next to each other. At the risk of sounding like a NIMBY the only way we can have extra homes in this particular area is to couple it with a new school etc.

    Nowadays I’m ashamed to say that I was born in Dewsbury as it’s now akin to the dark side of the moon!

    LOL!!

    We’d better be careful what we are saying in case the thought police take a dislike to good old fashioned banter, I’ve been accused of racism on HPC for similar innocent humour.

  • And once they’re built they can have a street party, and all start singing:

    “Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner..”

  • Well they could knock down and redevelop Holmfirth. What a dire place that is. And it’s a tourist area for ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ fans. The only tourist bit was the bit at the bottom of the hill, with the local shop. It reminded me of the dark depressing mill towns of my youth. A horrible place — bulldoze the lot and you’ll have more hectares in which to try again.
