Now talking about the impact of the #Tesco on the #Holmfirth Co-op and other shops in the town.
Jonathan: Around a dozen have been considered but the only one mentioned as being better than Midlothian is Drake's.
Officers have finished their presentation, now it's over to members of the public to make their case. Each speaker has three minutes.
First speaker is Ian Gooch of Holme Valley Business Association who predicts that a Tesco would draw a lot of people away from the heart ot the town.
Mr Gooch uses only two of his three alloted minutes. Jolly decent of him.
Holme Valley Parish Council member Greg Cristofi now speaking against the development.
Mr Cristofi barely uses one of his three alloted minutes. Is everyone in a rush to get home?
Heys Road resident Alex Bray speaking against the #Tesco proposal.
Mr Bray says he will leave the area if #Tesco gets the green light because he doesn't want to have to cope with the increased traffic on the road.
Former #KirkCouncil member Royston Rodgers speaking now.
A lovely man, but brevity is not his strength. I think he'll use his three minutes and then some...
Royston talking about the impact of the development on #Holmfirth's roads.
Royston finishes bang on the three-minute mark. I take it all back.
David Watson, a surveyor for the Drake's development, says "the Honley site satisfies a commercial need better".
