At the bottom of the Baildon section click on the

You can enter whatever you like but we think the most convincing arguments are regarding Bradford Council’s own stated aims to prioritise ‘biodiversity’, ‘environmental stewardship’ and ‘health and wellbeing’ through recreational activities such as walking and cycling.

You can link to our review of the ecological significance of the valley if you want a bit of back up.  It’s in the blog on our website.
