Letter by WoWcc setting out the case for taking the NCN81 cross-city route through a local nature reserve.
It's quite normal elsewhere in Britain but is found problematic by the self-proclaimed guardians of this LNR - the valley park bird group.
NCN81 goes over a section of the LNR between Wildside Activity Centre Ramp on Hordern Road and Aldersley Stadium / Hugh Porter Way. (http://www.camcycle.org.uk/map/route/27272/)
The grant money from the settlement appeared to be spent on fences and access barriers rather than an all-weather surface.
