Campaigners say a reduction in the number of homes planned for a Wetherby development will not help traffic levels in the town.

Developer Belway Homes has cut the amount of housing proposed for Spofforth Hill from 400 to 325.

But spokesman for the objectors Jim Walton said: “In our opinion Wetherby traffic levels could eventually choke the town; particularly when taking into account other proposed major developments in the Wetherby district (including Thorp Arch - 2,000) and Harrogate, which have not yet been included in the traffic assessments.”
