Campaigners who oppose plans for hundreds of homes to be built in Churwell are organising a public meeting.

Applicant Persimmon Homes and Priestgate Morley Limited lodged outline plans to redevelop Laneside Farm, off Victoria Road in Churwell into to 550 houses.

Objectors will discuss the plans at the meeting, and have now handed out more than 2,500 flyers and letters to residents in the village and in Morley.

The meeting has been organised by the town’s Morley Borough Independent party and backed by Leeds City Council ward councillors.

The objection letter says the plans should be refused because they will increase congestion.

It also says the plans will overload schools and health services and destroy greenbelt land.

The meeting takes place on Tuesday, June 7 at Morley Town Hall from 7pm.
