Thornhills is an ancient hamlet in Clifton, Brighouse. We are campaigning to save our ancient settlement from Calderdale’s bulldozers. We were excluded from the Clifton Village Neighbourhood Forum (CVNF) and so this is our collective voice.

We accept some building is inevitable, but the scale and type proposed is disproportionate

We find it perverse that Calderdale Council wants to destroy greenbelt, with all the ecological benefits of water retention, carbon capture and promoting a diverse wildlife. It’s even more confusing when you consider Calderdale declared a climate emergency at the start of 2019
Calderdale Council wants to build over 4,000 dwellings in South East Calderdale; we believe their case is flawed.
Calderdale’s Local Plan has yet to be found sound and in 2021 it is likely there will be further hearings.
