Dewsbury Rams plan backed by councillors

Plans that will help secure the long term future of Dewsbury Rams have been given the backing Kirklees Council cabinet members.

A masterplan for a development on land near the Dewsbury Rams Stadium in Owl Lane was approved at a cabinet meeting this afternoon (Tuesday).

The proposal includes 234 homes, a park and a replacement practice pitch. The council, as landlords, will now use the masterplan as part of the planning application, which will then need to be approved by councillors.

The residential development will be built entirely on green belt land.
