Councillors on the Inner South Community Committee are inviting you to their next workshop on Tuesday 1 November to discuss the city’s transport.
Transport is a fundamental component of what makes a strong economy as well as a compassionate and liveable city. The vision is for Leeds to be a fair, open and welcoming city with an economy that is both prosperous and sustainable with a transport system that helps all our communities to be successful.
Getting our transport system right is a critical element of achieving the Council’s Best City ambition. They want to know how you feel about transport in Leeds to develop the future transport strategy and plans for transport investment across the city.
The conversation began following the government’s decision to turn down the proposed New Generation Transport (NGT) scheme for Leeds in May, but with £173.5million of funding for the scheme being retained to invest in public transport in the city. The council hosted a transport summit in June attended by leading transport bodies and key stakeholders, followed by the survey, completed by over 4,750 people so far, which has been running since the start of August and has now been extended to November 11.
Leader of Leeds City Council and Middleton Park Councillor Judith Blake said:
“We hope as many people as possible will be able to attend the session and join in with the thousands of people who have already joined the conversation on the future direction of transport in Leeds.”
The session is open to all to attend, but if cannot attend the survey can be accessed online in all council libraries and one-stop centrescurrent survey which is running at www.leeds.gov.uk/transportconversation.
The Workshop takes place on Tuesday 1 November, 6.30pm at Leeds Civic Hall. Sandwiches and refreshments will be available from 6pm.
