MAG’s solicitor, urged the committee to reject the plan, saying: “Put simply, if you get this wrong, householders and their insurers are entitled to hold you legally responsible.”

The six-person committee took the matter to the vote, with all but one opting to reject the plan. Afterwards, MAG campaigner Graham Booth said: “Five-one. It was like a Bradford City away score!”

Campaigners say ‘common sense is prevailing’ as major homes plan is refused (From Bradford Telegraph and Argus).

R & A Meeting this Thursday the 29th

We will be catching the 9.05am train from Menston to Bradford. 

Please attend if you can!

Previously, on 15 October 2014, the R&A Committee had agreed to defer a decision because:

“Having heard the representations made by and on behalf of the Menston Action Group (“MAG”) and the applicants, and the comments of the Council’s Drainage officers on those representations,

the Committee was not satisfied with the drainage details submitted as part of the application in terms of potential flood risk.”

The Committee agreed to our offer to pay for an independent report, and they have now received a copy of the “Independent Review of Menston Flooding Problems” written by Dr Duncan W Reed.

At the time of writing, we are waiting to hear the outcome of our Judicial Review application for Derry Hill, which was heard on 19th January.
