Save Whalley Village Action Group protest

A lot of people in Whalley don’t want new houses in the village. 
The reasons are obvious: roads are already clogged while the school has had to place some pupils in a higher year group to cater for increased class sizes from the Calderstones estate.
For the proposed 116-home development in a floodplain field next to the A59 fly-over on Mitton Road, residents held a protest. I took the photographs.
Star of the show was Mitton Road’s Karen Czapowski (above).
Whalley royalty was also in attendance – Sheena Byrom OBE attended. Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans also came along.

The story made the front page of Clitheroe Advertiser and Times.
