Countryside Unit but not as we know it

I have just read the budget proposals and attended a meeting at Tod Town Hall. It is proposed to remove the Countryside Unit from the Council budget. Ideas, not yet thought out are to place it totally separate from the council and into a charitable trust. According to Courier and the budget proposals, there are to be job implications in countryside and forestry. I have just received this info:-

"There is a meeting on the 30th January organised by Calderdale Sustainability Forum being held 30th January at 4.30pm above Mytholmroyd Library regarding the Council’s proposed budget and the impact this is likely to have upon Calderdale’s Countryside Service. For more information Calderdale Sustainability Forum email The budget proposals can be found at

All consultation ends on 13th Feb so not much time.
