Your main objection categories -Traffic Congestion, Highways, and Road Safety
Your main objection sites – Wellhouse Lane, Hepworth Drive, Crossley Lane, Greenside Road, Old Bank Road. Please note, the following two points are also very important:-
1. Mirfield residents are very seriously concerned about our town and its future – for the present and future generations. People do accept development must happen but this must be done at the right time and in the right areas.
2. The infrastructure in Mirfield is straining ‘under the weight’ of an already well established population within and the surrounding areas. Mirfield’s highway infrastructure cannot cope with the existing volumes of traffic. let alone any additional burden created; there are only three ways out of Mirfield and at times the whole of Mirfield becomes static – infrastructure before housing!
