A PUBLIC meeting will be held to clear the air over plans for a new path for walkers and cyclists.
Organisers made the pledge after controversy arose over the scheme for the Fenay Greenway, between Kirkburton and Kirkheaton.
The four-mile route was planned to run on the dismantled Kirkburton branch railway line to provide a safe alternative to busy Penistone Road.
A row broke out when a leaflet sent to homes along the route claimed gardens would be compulsorily purchased.
The claim was later denied by Kirklees Council.
All three Tory councillors in Kirkburton dismissed suggestions they had spread the rumour in order to stir up opposition to the greenway.
Clr Adrian Murphy, one of the three, said none of them were against the scheme.
He added: "It is true that this rumour has come from somewhere, although I am unaware of where."
Clr Murphy said the public meeting to be held would have two objectives - to ease fears about compulsory purchase orders and to let people know about progress on the greenway.
He said: "The date of the public meeting will be advertised in due course, allowing both objectors and supporters the opportunity to put forward their views and clear the air."
Kirklees Council says it is still investigating whether to go ahead with the project.
