Kirklees Council and Denby Dale Parish Council are working together to develop plans for landscape and biodiversity improvements at the old screens site, off Park Gate in Skelmanthorpe.

A draft master plan for the site has been drawn up which can be viewed here . We would be grateful for feedback from local residents on the proposals to ensure that developments at the site meet the needs of local people as much as possible.

Please complete this short survey by 4th January so that we can incorporate feedback and suggestions into the project as it moves forwards.

Thank you for your help!
