PLANNING APPLICATIONS

Discouraging adverse developments, supporting positive applications

An important role of the Society is to consider new planning applications. Kirklees Council consults us on major applications which cover the Huddersfield area.

Key changes often result from the Society’s comments and its efforts in preventing development which is felt to have a negative impact on the area’s heritage and environmental quality.

Anyone can view and comment on planning applications via the Kirklees Council website. ​If you see any you think we should know about, please contact us in addition to sending your views to Kirklees Council
