Greenbelt protestors marched against plans they believe could see up to 1,600 homes built in their area.

Residents in Rawdon and Horsforth did a three-mile walk around the proposed sites – two thirds of which is on greenbelt land – as part of a Community Voice on Planning event this afternoon (April 12).

Another event was also held by the Menston and Guiseley Greenbelt Protection Group yesterday in protest over plans for the Ings Fileds area.
