38 out of 44 candidates, standing in the NYCC elections, across the eight Harrogate and Knaresborough wards, have come out against the roads that threaten Nidd Gorge and The Nidderdale Greenway. Earlier in April we wrote to all candidates asking “are you for or against the Blue and Green routes?” All respondents were unanimous in their opposition. 6 candidates didn’t respond.
That begs the questions: Who actually wants these roads? And why are NYCC spending a huge amount of our money investigating the feasibility of these unpopular roads that nobody wants?
