Frozen Points ? Now frozen Pens ! Car Park ?

 Stop Press !

The Haste Report was presented to the Town Council recommending a Station Car Park.

The Town Council have decided to follow this up further.

The valiant train users from Mytholmroyd faced frozen points and snow drifts during their recent journeys.

 Just when they thought things were getting back to normal, station users from 6am had to face the clipboard-wielding members of Mytholmroyd Station Partnership.

On behalf of Hebden Royd Town Council, volunteers from the station group have been out since dawn ascertaining whether there is any demand for a car park in the old goods yard at Mytholmroyd.

 The hundreds of completed questionnaires have been sent to transport specialists Haste Partnership of York who will analyse and report to the Town Council in early January.

 Commenting on the tight timescale, the project has to be completed by 5th January 2011, Richard Haste said “ideally we would have liked more than four and one half weeks to carry out this sort of study but we recognise the timing pressures on budget setting and will pull out all the stops to meet the deadline we’ve been set“.

 In the meantime, Geoff Mitchell, Chairman of the Station Partnership, thanks everyone who has participated in this Survey for their sense of humour – especially when the ink froze in the pens due to the minus 9 degrees!
