Consultation document on the WY + TF A629 Halifax Road Phase 5 Carbon Impact Assessment

John Allport, Gideon Richards, Stephen Moore

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


There are plans for Kirklees Council to implement major changes to the main A629 route from the M62 junction 24 at Ainley Top to the town centre. These changes involve improvement and widening of the A629 to include junction improvements, re-positioning of footways and footway improvements, pedestrian crossing provision, the alteration, demolition and erection of walls, construction of retaining walls, erection of fencing, hard and soft landscaping to include the removal of trees and replacement planting, replacement street lighting, change of use of land to highway and change of use to and formation of car parks at Edgerton Cemetery and land adjoining 103 Halifax Road (within a Conservation Area). This is a highly visible project, having already been the subject of regional TV coverage owing to the question of removal of mature trees, and so should be seen to be transparent in relation to the Council’s declaration of a Climate Emergency. To this end, the Commission examined the Climate Impact Assessment for the project in order to give an independent but informed viewpoint on how this project aligns with the Council’s stated objectives regarding carbon reduction.
