LETTERS: Are the Five Towns becoming suburbs of Wakefield and Leeds?

Over many years the Express has raised concerns about the lack of manufacturing jobs in the Five Towns, as well as housing, health and policing issues.

Are we in the Five Towns now being turned into a housing suburbia for the cities of Wakefield and Leeds? We are lacking proper jobs, health services and have non-existent policing of our areas.

I raise these concerns because I see our future families not being able to live in a work/home environment that the older generations experienced. Would the Express readers like to comment on this?
