I would be grateful if you could pass the following information on to your members.
A bid for European funding has been organised by Calderdale Council, in partnership with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, the Environment Agency, local community groups and Genr8 Developments. This bid is a large one, covering several sites along the River Calder, from Hebden Bridge down to Brighouse, one of which is the Milner Royd Local Nature Reserve and the Copley Valley Green Corridor. The bid has passed the first stage of the applications, and we are now preparing the second stage. If successful, there will be funds to develop the biodiversity and recreational potential of these sites.
For the second stage bid, the detailed proposals for Milner Royd and Copley Valley have to be submitted. In order to determine the proposals, a community consultation exercise is taking place, with an open day on based at the PSL Group offices in Unit 2, and an online questionnaire available until . The questionnaire can be found at
I attach a copy of the flier for the open day () which has been distributed to homes and businesses surrounding the site.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
