  1. Water voles save 'oasis of wildlife' from developers

    Water voles have saved a former allotment site in Batley from being turned into a housing development, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

    Allotments

    Kirklees Council's seven-member Strategic Planning Committee voted to throw out the proposal for the 8.5 acre site, which had been put forward by Noble Homes.

    Among the list of grounds for refusing the scheme was concern for water voles living in the area and how they might be affected by large-scale building work.

    The Castleford-based developer's scheme was first mooted in 2016 and drew fierce criticism from local residents.

    They said the area was an "oasis of wildlife" providing habitat for bats, water voles and great crested newts.
