Planning ahead

The Planning Policy team of Calderdale Council are currently developing a Local Development Framework which will set the planning structure for issues such as housing, the local economy, the environment and transport. To help them with this project the team asked the panel how important it is to them to have certain services within walking distance of their home.

The responses were:
