Thank you to The Squeaker for allowing us to let local people know about our campaign. If you haven’t had it through the door, you can view it online here. We’re on pages 40-41.
Please support our friends at Save Tong and Fulneck Valley and object to Bradford Council’s plan to build a road across the Tong and Fulneck Valley, which in turn will allow them build houses and industrial units.
In our view this will destroy Black Carr Woods and precious greenbelt.

First up is the Bradford to Halifax Greenway that is very similar to our project in the fact it incorporates a tunnel. If you have time please object to the planning application for abandonment. Full instructions are here.
Members of the Pudsey Greenside Greenway Group are working with West Yorkshire Bat Group.
At the latest Bat Group training batty enthusiasts met at St Chads in Far Headingley and were reminded how the West Yorkshire Bat Survey works with volunteers walking 3 to 4 kilometres with specialist bat detection equipment along a pre determined route at night.
These routes are carefully selected and spaced evenly across the county. At this latest training we learned how use the equipment and also undertook some troubleshooting before walking through some nearby woods and detecting some very obliging Pipistrelle and Soprano Pipistrelle bats.
Greenside Greenway Group will have access to the equipment to monitor our Pudsey Bats in May/June and again in July/August.
We continue to campaign against the rail cutting full infill planning application which is currently still undecided. We understand the developer is reconsidering the pending planning application.
We are still fundraising for a full feasibility study of the three phases of the proposed Greenside Greenway route.
Greenside Greenway group have just undertaken a two hour litter pick on the section of old railway line between New Street and South Parade. We counted 35 sacks of rubbish, plus lots of other big objects. We also cleared to one side many bricks, stones and branches to improve the path.
