This week Connecting Leeds has launched a public consultation to better understand issues related to travel in Leeds. They are consulting on one area in Leeds at a time for a period of six weeks, and each will have its own individual webpage and on our ‘Leeds Streets for All’ parent page.
The consultation that has gone live first is in Armley, Bramley and Stanningley, and Kirkstall wards and will run until Sunday 17 December 2023.
The main aim is for people to have their say on transport/safety issues in their local area. Residents, businesses and stakeholders can do this by visiting our the Armley, Bramley and Stanningley, and Kirkstall web page and dropping a pin on a map. The five main themes are –
- Vehicles and parking
- Walking and wheeling (including accessibility, prams, wheelchairs and scooters)
- Accessing bus stops and rail stations
- The street environment
The data from these consultations will help them prioritise improvements when funding becomes available, in line with the Leeds Transport Strategy targets.
A video has been created to explain the consultation in a more simplified way, if you can please share this through any of your networks.
