Have say on green link plan; WEST BROMWICH.

ST GEORGE'S Day revellers are being urged to have their say on pounds 25 million plans for a Green Bridge link between Sandwell and Walsall.

Sandwell Council officers will be canvassing opinions at the St George's Day medieval party in Dartmouth Park, West Bromwich, on Sunday.

The Green Bridge is the name of a proposed 12-mile route for walkers and cyclists between Dartmouth Park and Walsall's Arboretum via Sandwell Valley.

The plans includes an iconic Green Bridge across the A41 Expressway in Sandwell and an eye-catching visitor centre at Barr Beacon in Walsall.

Sandwell Council has teamed up with its Walsall counterpart on the scheme, part of a wider Black Country bid for up to pounds 50 million from the Big Lottery Fund's Living Landmarks: The People's Millions programme.

Sandwell Council's group planner Alan Winser said: "We want to hear everyone's views and whether they use the open space and facilities at Sandwell Valley and/or Dartmouth Park.

"Please take a couple of minutes to visit our stall at the St George's Day party from noon and tell us what you think."

Under the plans there will also be investment in important green spaces for wildlife, including Hill House Farm and nature reserves at Forge Mill, Sheepwash, Warrens Hall Farm, and Priory Woods and Swan Pool.

People can also fill in a questionnaire at www.

sandwell.gov.uk or www.walsall.gov.uk or e-mail greenbridge@ sandwell.gov.uk and greenbridge@walsall.gov.uk.
