What changes would you like in Middleton and Belle Isle?

Residents in Middleton and Belle Isle are being asked for their opinions on what changes they would like to see in the local area.

A new neighbourhood framework is being developed to help bring new development and investment to the area.

The framework will set out where new housing and other buildings can be built and what other improvements are needed.

From tomorrow (Saturday) there will be a week-long programme of local consultation. The exhibition starts at Middleton District Shopping Centre (1oam-1pm).

The  exhibition will then tour 20 different places around the area including schools, shopping areas, and other key community facilities to allow as many people to be included as possible.

Councillor Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council executive member for development and the economy said:

“This is an exciting opportunity for people to share their ideas about how the area can change. We want as many people as possible to let us know what they think.

“The framework will become an important document to promote new development opportunities on many of the council owned sites across the area.’
