Letter: Let’s not stand by and allow this decision
The latest meeting of the Todmorden Development Board voted to continue to engage with Aldi regarding their proposal to build a much larger supermarket on Burnley Road, a site for which they already have planning permission. This is to be considered by Calderdale Council in the near future.
Last year you kindly published information that we were trying to arrange a school reunion for the people who started at Todmorden Grammar School in 1966 - celebrating 50 years since we started Grammar School.
Surely even the most thick-skinned Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council officers and councillors must be squirming at the correlation of the headline front page articles of April 29 and (April 22 in the Halifax Courier.
It isn’t very often that you hear in the press very positive news about the business that politicians (MPs) undertake on behalf of their constituents. Usually we only hear how dishonest and morally unethical they are.
How timely that The Conservative Group on Calderdale Council should bring a motion asking the council’s Labour leader to write to Jeremy Corbyn requesting “to expel all members who have expressed or condoned anti-Semitic views”.
We are now into ‘silly season’, where the newspaper starts to get inundated with letters from those seeking election or re-election onto the Town Council in May. No, this isn’t an election broadcast on behalf of myself. I have no plans to stand for re election.
In May, our present Town and Parish Councils will finish their 4 year stint and every registered voter will get their chance to elect a brand new Parish/Town council as part of the National Election process.
