Do we not now need independent politicians who live in Hebden Bridge rather than Brighouse or Todmorden to stage another Watchdog type campaign of opposition, doing a Totnes to kill off the Garden Street traffic plan a few years ago? What is happening to the local and national image of Hebden Bridge as “the town of small shops”?
