Leeds City Council agreed to designate Beeston Neighbourhood Forum on 5 January 2015.
This is welcome news and enables the Beeston community to come together to discuss and resolve the issues identified when the designated area was consulted in June 2014. The process will culminate in the writing of the Beeston Plan. If the Plan is supported by a referendum, it will be adopted as a planning document detailing the regeneration of the Beeston Neighbourhood Area for the next 10 to 15 years.
This development was reported at the meeting of the Beeston Community Forum on 8 January 2015 at which Hilary Benn MP was the guest speaker. All sections of the community have been contacted about the Beeston Plan and how they can get involved.
Beeston Community Forum meets next week to make arrangements for the first meeting of the Beeston Neighbourhood Forum.
