The rear of 1 to 11 The Woodlands, Palace House Road - two large detached houses

Another planning application has been submitted for two large detached houses on the land at the rear of 1 to 11 The Woodlands Palace House Road.

It is a very similar to plans submitted in 2013 that were rejected on appeal by the planning inspectorate in 2014 on the "grounds of it would likely increase harmful localised flooding by surface water run off"

Residents of The Woodlands, The Spinney  and along Palace House Road are concerned  about surface water flooding as amounts of rainfall are likely to  have increased.

Proposed Certified Camp Site No.103/051 at Cross Hills Heptonstall.

Proposed Certified Camp Site No.103/051 at Cross Hills Heptonstall.

The Caravan and Camping Club (Tel: 024 7647 5448) have recently received (27/5/2021), an application to set up a campsite on land near Crown Point Heptonstall. The HebWeb has been contacted by residents who are concerned that this proposal would increase traffic, ie, (campers and their refuse collection) there would be a need to build/supply a Chemical Disposal Point for campers to empty their chemical toilets, and a drinking water point.

Crosshills is close to Heptonstall School at the top of Smithwell Lane a cobbled road wide enough for one vehicle mostly, which children and patents walk to and from the school. Certified Campsites can be precursors to applications for full outline planning applications etc. Thank you.

Land off Stubbing Holme Road

Planning Application for Three Detached Houses on Land off Stubbing Holme Road


This is a full application to build three large, detached houses (not the 'affordable' sort) on land at the end of Stubbing Holme Road.  Local residents are concerned about the impact of increased traffic on a road used regularly by pedestrians, plus the increased risk of flooding in an area where both the river and canal have flooded severely.  In addition, this land is a green space greatly appreciated in an area where most houses have no gardens.

The planning application documents were uploaded to Calderdale Council's website in February 2018, but additional documents have since been uploaded.  You can comment on this planning application via Calderdale Council's website (www.calderdale.gov.uk/planning) or in writing to Regeneration and Strategy, Planning Services, c/o The Town Hall, Crossley Street, Halifax, HX1 1UJ.
