Consultation closes on 8th March –
The first question to consider is the potential use for the site and the benefit to the local community.
Can you think of other uses that would be of greater benefit to Clifton Village?
Sustainable development is at the heart of new planning requirements!
Are you confident there is demand for the type of development proposed?
Will operating hours restrictions be required, including for commercial vehicles delivering/collecting goods? (if distribution / manufacturing use planned)
Will the proposals reduce or increase air pollution?
How will the site be lit, to ensure no light pollution for residents who surround the site?
The loss of greenfield to development with extensive areas of buildings and hardstandings could increase risk of flooding, how will this be mitigated?
How will site development support wildlife?
Is the site stable to accommodate development, including having regards to previous underground mine workings?
Is there any archaeology to preserve?
Is a traffic light (signalled) junction logical and sensible?
Will this slow or improve traffic into and through Brighouse and to and from the M62?
If the site includes a through road to Clifton, what measures will there be to prevent the site becoming a 'rat-run' into Clifton?
Is loss of car-parking an issue?
The proposals include a new ‘right turn’ traffic island into the site, this will require double yellow lines along the entrance to the new site, prohibiting roadside parking for residents.
Du you believe the site access proposals will reduce or increase congestion and air pollution?
What impacts will the proposal have on the local road network?
How easy will it be to walk to the site from Brighouse Railway Station? (Think about the walk from the railway station to all the site). What could the developers do to encourage this?
How will the development encourage sustainable travel to work (walk/cycling/bus)?
If you contributed to previous consultations, are you confident the proposals considered your previous comments?
