A public meeting to discuss a bid for cash to link footpaths along Keighley’s North Beck will be staged later this month.

People have been invited to attend the event at Keighley Civic Centre, in North Street, at 7pm on Wednesday, February 20.

Keighley town councillor Peter Corkindale, of the Keighley West Environment Partnership, has bid for £150,000 from Natural England to enable the work to take place.

The partnership wants to create an unbroken route from the town centre to Goose Eye.

This would mean negotiating with landowners and putting up information boards showing flora and fauna in the woods and fields along the route.

Coun Corkindale said: “I need to make people aware of where we are, and what progress has been made.

"I’ve received a large response to the plan, all of it so far positive from many groups.”
