BRADFORD BECK CATCHMENT PLAN
Agreement Event 21.11.12
Saltaire Methodist Church,
- Session 1 – 15:00 – 17:30
- Session 2 – 19:00 – 20:30
The project is to hold its scheduled ‘agreement’ event on Wednesday 21st November at the Saltaire Methodist Church over two sessions. The event will examine issues that have become evident through the numerous consultations and events we have held over the year about the beck and its management into the future. Both of these sessions will look at the picture of the beck that has been gathered thus far through water quality and ecological assessments, the 6 visions for the beck, as well as a summary of potential future projects to take the project forward. All are welcome!
The first session from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm is for the institutional stakeholders and associated professionals and the second from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm is for the wider public. The reasons we are doing these across two sessions is to cater for the numbers of attendees, and that the focus of each session is slightly different. The Church is 8-10 minutes walk from Saltaire Train Station and there is a carpark nearby on the corner of Caroline Street and Victoria Road.
If you would like to book a place please email me, and feel free to distribute this further to colleagues and/or friends who might be interested in attending.
With kind regards,

I will be attending the meeting on 6th October on behalf of the Trust. Although Stuart (Jobbins) has been invited, he has told me that he will be unable to attend as he will be in Scotland. This may leave the way open for someone else to attend in his place. Please let me know if you are particularly interested in the fish pass issue and if you wish to attend.
