Heptonstall Parish Councillors are re-examining plans to launch an asset transfer bid for the fields adjacent to Acre Lane, Heptontall.

A parish council spokesperson said that if any application to Calderdale Council was successful it would not then be used for housing.

The spokesperson said: “The plan is to bring it into a community space where there could be a picnic site, an orchard or allotments.

“Councillors are going to explore setting up some sort of outdoor fitness machines.

“It could also be a space for a gala or a festival.

“If the parish council obtained an asset transfer of the land they would bring it in to community use rather than opening it up for development.”
