WHILE campaigning for the Conservatives in the Newsome ward, I met a lot of disgruntled electors.

To my great relief their disharmony was more with Kirklees Council rather than the national government.

The Local Development Framework has caused consternation, particularly in areas with green field land nearby.

To give an example of this, a constituent in the New Laithe Hill area told me he had been refused permission to extend his property owing to concerns over traffic problems.

He was astounded to find the LDF would allow a massive housing complex on nearby land, owned by Kirklees, which is framed by New Laithe, Ashes Lane and High Lane. This is one example of the frustration caused by the so called consultation process.

One can only assume that the local Labour party is on a kamikaze mission. I, for one, hope they succeed.
