kirklees Council has been accused of ‘selling off the family silver’ as it announced shock plans to close the historic Red House Museum.
The council could sell off the museum – which attracts more than 26,000 visitors annually – saving the authority £116,000 over two years.
However the plans have been branded ‘devastating’ and ‘disastrous’ and would leave Spen without a museum at all.
TESCO has been told to either start work on its long-planned replacement Cleckheaton supermarket, or shelve the plans completely.
But, no work has been done and a Tesco spokeswoman has confirmed there is no date set for work to start.
