Green grass will flourish.   Controversial plans to rip up the cobbles of Finkle Street took an unexpected turn today when it was announced that the historic Selby street would most likely be turfed.  Unveiling the plans, the project was described as both sustainable and an environmentally friendly alternative to asphalt.  We spoke to shoppers in the town, Victoria Cole of Hambleton stated, ''I think its a great idea it will look pretty and its different, it will definitely stop drivers going down Finkle Street.'' Although Peter Zafon from Barlby stated that, '' I think it will be an expense to maintain who is going to do this work? Selby Council?''  Part of the plans will see a a large quantity of the old old cobbles to be distributed into a scenic rockery which will be created opposite  the post office.  Work is due to get underway in May and are expected to be completed in time for the World Cup.  We would like to hear your views on the new proposals
