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.
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.
“Traffic has altered the nature of things, e.g. walking to school, riding horse or pony, driving (horse or pony) safely, driving animals on roads safely, etc. One wouldn’t want to put the clock back, but most people come to walk, wander and get away from rush. Isn’t that the sort of tourist we should cater for and leave those who look for more sophistication to go elsewhere?”
Quotation from a resident of Kirkby Malham.
“The character of the dale is precious and fragile. Once destroyed it will be gone forever. Therefore NO to wider roads, easier (faster) access. YES to slowing down traffic YES to park and ride scheme, YES to rebuilding walls, NO to 4 x 4 on green lanes and motorcycles on bridleways/footpaths
BUT safer roads must be a priority.”.
Quotation from a resident of Scosthrop parish.
