A public meeting is set to be held to discuss residents’ ideas and thoughts on the future of Armley Town Street.

armley town centre revival planOrganised by Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves and local councillors, the meeting follows a wide-ranging public consultation which saw more than 1,000 local people have their say on the future of the street, which has been troubled by anti-social behaviour, rubbish dumping and derelict buildings.

The consultation saw people encouraged to fill in a questionnaire, both online and in person, which asked what people thought were the main issues affecting the area and ideas on how to tackle them.

Answers will feed into the Armley Town Street Revival Plan, which aims to make Town Street the ‘best town centre in Leeds’.

The next stage of the process will be an hour-long public meeting at Armley Library at 5pm on Friday, 18 September. Representatives from Leeds City Council, the police and other local groups will be present at the meeting

In a letter to residents and businesses who filled out the questionnaire, Ms Reeves said:

“Now that we have identified what local people feel is wrong with the area, it is now time that we work together in order to come up with solutions that we can get implemented quickly.

“The purpose of the meeting will be to put together ideas and thoughts on how we can improve Armley Town Street. So bring your thoughts and ideas along to the meeting on what you would like to  see happen on Armley Town Street.”

Ms Reeves is asking residents to confirm their attendance by calling her office on 0113 2552311 or emailing rachel.reeves.mp@parliament.uk so she can tell Armley Library how many people to expect.
