Housing in Thornes Park

We want to thank all those people who supported our campaign to prevent residential development in Thornes Park. The letters and emails to Councillor Box, the opposition expressed at the consultation meetings arranged by the development company, the letters to Wakefield Express and the petitions, both on-line and on paper, all had an effect. We were pleased to see Peter Box's letter in the Wakefield Express on 28th October, which said " I can reassure anyone with concerns, that we have no intention of selling any council-owned land which might lead to future developments in Thornes Park."

This does not mean, however that the battle is won. There are still several ways that the College and Panacea can try to pursue their residential proposals, but at least the complete public opposition has been made very clear to everyone.

We need to keep vigilant and be ready to react to any further moves to promote housing.

Thank you again for your help and continued support.

The Management Committee, Friends of CHaT Parks
