Councillors against new housing in Otley
9:30am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
Plans to create new housing on the edge of Otley would contribute to the loss of the town’s green fields. That is the ward councillors’ first reaction to outline proposals to create a residential development and access road on land off East Busk Lane.
The scheme would involve demolishing old sheds on the site, on Otley’s eastern outskirts, to make way for the new properties.
Councillor Colin Campbell (Lib Dem, Otley & Yeadon) said: “We would not support this type of piecemeal development, which nibbles away at the green fields around Otley. It would be detrimental to the area and take little account of the impact of the traffic the site would generate.”
