A balanced view at last

Bolton Brow

Sowerby Bridge

How refreshing to read two balanced letters about the Sowerby Bridge/Copley Valley scheme from Mr Akroyd (March 9) and June Paxton-White (March 11).

This has been a derelict and neglected valley for more than a decade and at last something is being done to improve it. Yes, let’s get the details right, but blanket opposition will not achieve anything,

What a shame the environment group formed to, “protect the environment of the valley” has waited until a proposal has come forward before forming. If they were that concerned they would have been coming up with their proposals years ago. By the way, fly-posting on lampposts is hardly environmentally friendly!
