The Oakenshaw Residents' Association and local residents/road users, whilst not opposed to the development of the site itself, request that Keyland Developments find an alternative access route to the proposed development on the Former North Bierley Water Treatment Works. The preferred access is unsuitable for the village as Bradford Road/Cleckheaton Road is already over congested at peak times and the increase in traffic would have a major impact on the junction with Chain Bar roundabout, which has no traffic controls. Also the safety of local residents and the danger to Woodlands CofE Primary School is a major concern.
Why is this important?
The people of Woodlands and Oakenshaw are not against the development of the Former Water Treatment Works at North Bierley, but we are adamantly against the proposed Access and Egress through Oakenshaw Village, Bradford/Cleckheaton Road via Mill Carr Hill Road and Cliff Hollins Lane.
How it will be delivered
We plan to deliver this petition next Thursday to Kirklees Council, so there isn't a lot of time .
Please sign and help us keep our village safe.
