Problems with traffic congestion around the Kirkstall Bridge area will be discussed at a meeting this week.

Leeds City Council’s Inner West Community Committee will host a themed workshop from 6pm tomorrow (Wednesday, March 20) with presentations on the following:

· Air Quality

· Kirkstall Bridge Traffic Congestion

The workshop will be followed by the formal committee meeting at 7.15pm, where there is a chance for people living in the Armley, Bramley & Stanningley and Kirkstall wards to address the committee on local issues.

As well as decoding on community grants for the area, councillors will also discuss the council’s local anti-social behaviour strategy (LASBT) for the area. A recent meeting of the Outer West Community Committee, which covers Pudsey, Farsley & Calverley and Farnley & Wortley areas – decided there needed to be an urgent review into how anti-social behaviour is dealt with in the area.

The agenda can be read in full here.

The committee meets at West Leeds Activity Centre in Lenhurst Avenue. All welcome to attend.


While you’re here…

Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!

There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.

We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.

And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.

To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!

And we need YOUR help to continue …

For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).

As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.

Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.
