A newly opened cycling route from Longroyd Bridge to Milnsbridge has increased interest in extending it to the upper valley as well as into the town centre.
The route is funded by City Connect, a programme of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority,
Kirklees Council has commissioned sustainable transport charity Sustrans to scope out options for a Colne Valley 'greenway' route. Key links for cyclists and walkers from the town centre to Longroyd Bridge will be included in the work.
An open meeting at Slaithwaite Civic Hall on February 7, from 7pm to 8.30pm, will hear about future plans for walking, cycling and horse riding routes through the Colne Valley with a chance to air your views.
