Malhamdale, being part of the Settle and District Community Investment Prospectus, initiatives through Settle and District Chamber of Trade, is well placed to receive significant financial help - especially if we are seen to be enterprising. The funding comes under many headings - principally Objective 2 and ERDF. This means that people bringing business into the area are eligible for financial help.
Sports facilities, arts festivals, broadband, new uses for existing buildings, inward investment, transport infrastructure, value added tourism and collaborative enterprise are all on the agenda. If you have ideas that will bring wealth and prosperity to Malhamdale, please let us know or, better still, join one of the groups. Energy and skill invested now will pay great dividends in the years to come. Malhamdale is going to be very much on the map and an even better place to live, work and visit.
Alan Hulme, Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, Regional Manager said: ’The meeting provided an excellent opportunity for the local community to discuss what matters to them. The
ideas put forward don’t always fit the work of the Authority, but we would be only too pleased to offer assistance in taking forward together those suggestions which help with visitor
management or conserve and enhance the local environment of Malhamdale.’
Local Airton resident Jo Smith said “As a local person,
‘ born and bred’, I was pleased to see so many
people getting involved in the development of our own future.”
Malham resident Stuart Gledhill said “It was nice to
see so many people there and so much positive thinking going
on. I am hopeful that the atmosphere generated will continue.”
