The Ringway is the Right Way! started this petition to Kirklees Council

We call upon the Full Council of Kirklees to debate and seriously consider the following petition.

We ask Kirklees Council to buy the piece of land in private ownership, between Brunswick Street and Walkley Lane Heckmondwike. This is the old Leeds New Railway line, it links up the Ringway to the Greenway. We want to walk, cycle, and horseride safely, on this route, making a circular off road route all round the Spen Valley for local people to enjoy. Buying this piece of land protects it for all time, and saves our community from having to cross busy roads to visit the Greenway.

The land is a rewilded nature reserve, part of the green corridor in Spen Valley, full of wild flowers, trees, insects, birds and mammals. We do not want to destroy this urban open space, we ask Kirklees to protect this area and make use of the old railway line for the  benefit of all residents and users of the Greenway.

We want Kirklees to protect our industrial heritage, to encourage the appreciation of the Victorian Bridges running through Heckmondwike, by linking the Greenway and the Ringway and providing an off road route for visitors to view the impressive bridges through our town. We believe that buying this land will regenerate Heckmondwike, encourage outdoor exercise in a safe environment, and preserve our environment. Please sign.
