A Planning Application has been submitted to Kirklees Council for the demolition of the former St Marys Primary School with development to create a new parish car park and a small residential development. Letters of support for the proposal can be made to Kirklees Council on www.kirklees.gov.uk/planning or by email to [email protected] quoting planning application number 2018/92555.

Please send in letters of support on behalf of the parish so we can finally develop this site for the benefit of St Mary’s.
