The Secretary of State will respond formally in writing next week but did make the initial comment that he was “very shocked by the way the Labour run Kirklees Council have abandoned its duties and are revelling in the chaos.”

Jason said, “I am worried and concerned like many local residents about unchecked and uncontrolled development following a flood of new planning applications that are putting our countryside at risk. I’m hoping that the Secretary of State can give guidance to our Kirklees Council so that progress can be made with a plan, that reflects local needs and wishes, and can be kick-started again.”
