Residents in Cornholme are being invited to a public event to share their views on making roads safer in the town.
Calderdale Council is holding the Cornholme Safety Summit on Saturday 28 November at the Old Library in Cornholme from 11am until 1pm, in response to concerns raised by residents and local councillors about road safety in the area.
The event is a chance for local people, councillors and council officers to get together to discuss the issues and look at how to tackle them.
Cllr Simon Young, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health, Wellbeing and Engagement, said:
“Residents have been asking for the roads in Cornholme to be made safer. We take this very seriously and want to learn more about their concerns so we can look at how to help make Cornholme a safer place. We are setting up the Cornholme Safety Summit to focus completely on this part of Calderdale and to bring everyone together for an open discussion. Local people’s views are really important to us and I urge them to come along and have their say.”
The Council will listen carefully to the issues raised at the event and plans to discuss these in detail with Todmorden Town Council at a meeting looking at ways to tackle the issues in Cornholme.
