This development is an absolute obscenity. Planning gone mad. Where on God's Earth is all this 'communities'(for that is what it is)sewage & waste water going to go. The existing sewerage facility to Marley is already well beyond full capacity. Who is in charge of the loony bin? In the next few weeks Yorkshire Water are going to dig up my backyard to enable them to fit a non-return valve inside a sewage inspection chamber located on my premises, (much against my will), they assure me that this will will resolve the problem(I doubt it) The existing small bore sewage pipe that originates at the top of the town runs down the middle of the beck & attempts to discharge into the larger bore sewage pipe running down Howden Rd. This is usually successful unless there has been excessive rainfall. In this event we get overflows of raw sewage(very tasty). We have lived at our property since the early 90's, there never was a problem until house building began at various sites close to our location & upstream. Further development in our town without taking into consideration our existing infrastructure can only result in adverse conitions that will be difficult to rectify.

And our MP(Hopkins) and Cllr(Mallinson) think money from developers should be spent on a bridge over the bypass and not urgent projects on the infrastructure.

Classic cram them houses in...because the developers know there is every possible reason, with the current relaxed laws, that Bradford will give them the nod!

In some minor respects of the design I believe they have listened to what folk have said...but then almost in a feat of defiance they have shoved far too many houses in to a scheme giving two fingers to us all.

This is condensed urban style of planning not one that reflects the open characteristics of the countryside around. It is crap and wouldn’t live there if it was the driest place in the Valley!

223 houses with the potential for 446 cars plus coming out of Belton Road. Put the Bypass in place with a link road to this estate then maybe just maybe on a good day I would say yes!!

I happened to have got lost In Runcorn New Town (a 1967 modernist development) by accident this last weekend. It wasn’t pleasant getting lost on the rat run of roads but.. yes but.. I can tell you now that the green lushness of the place and the spatial aspects of the planning of the townhouses far exceeds in superiority this proposal of Belton Road. The thought by planners and developers working together that went into some of these new towns is bewildering, though it is recognised some aren't as successful as others.

What we are seeing today in this new proposal at Belton Road though is the culmination of greedy developers, slack planning and poor designers who can’t be arsed to work together to create a scheme that is beautiful and functional and one that reflects the genus loci, because money means far too much to them than thinking about appeasing our township.

For a scheme this size they should be putting in a small park not just open space waste/flood land at the bottom. It wont be usable for much of the year as well.Children will not walk all that way to play at Silsden Park. Apart from that its one of the worse parks in the area and set to get worse under the council cuts.

They should also be putting in road improvements, such as a roundabout onto Keighley Road.
Their should also be more screening to the west of the site....but you can guess that they don’t want to because that will be the next application site!

Hmmm..how do you drive through square corners? (which are clearly designed to cram in more houses!!)

They should have built in to the scheme a proper visible SUDS scheme. They could have put in attractive attenuation ponds, channels and berms and made a proper habitat area for local interest.

Could not agree more with Corky Yorky even though some of it is technical and not sure what it all means.
