What can we do to oppose these developments?
There is an election in the next few weeks and candidates may well be visiting your home and asking for your vote. Ask them about the Sowerby Bridge/Copley Valley Project. Ask them if they objected in writing to either of the recent planning applications and if they didn’t ask them why. Remember they want something from you and this scheme will affect many hundreds, if not thousands of people.
Talk to your neighbours about the scheme. We find that many people who live in Sowerby Bridge, Copley and the surrounding areas are totally oblivious to what is happening anf the effects that this scheme will have on our quality of life.
Write to your local councillor or the councillor with responsibility for Economy and Enviroment with your questions and objections.
If you have a Facebook account then there is an active group of people who oppose this scheme, consider joining this.
Please note that you do not need to be a resident in Copley or Sowerby Bridge to object to this scheme. Many people travel from all over to enjoy this beautiful valley and your objections are equally as valid.
