A public inquiry to decide the fate of land earmarked for 180 new homes in West Yorkshire has started this morning.
A government inspector is heading the meeting which will decide if land at Derry Hill in Menston, will be granted village green status. If given, it would block any developments on the greenbelt site. A final decision is expected at the end of this week.
Campaigner Steven Ellams has been speaking to Calendar.
