Cycle superhighway plans to be discussed at Bramley and Stanningley Forum


Bramley and Stanningley residents residents have the chance next week to discuss the £29 million cycle superhighway currently being constructed.

Members of the Cycle Superhighway Team will be attending the Bramley and Stanningley Ward Forum to consult on current works in the area.

The cycle superhighway, which runs through west Leeds, has received a mixed response,  despite being intended to be part of the legacy of the 2014 Leeds Grand Depart of the Tour de France.

Some local residents are concerned about the disruption caused by the building work, the loss of parking spaces and the overall cost of the scheme, while others have welcomed the new lane, saying it will encourage more safer cycling in the city and help take cars off the roads.

Councillor Caroline Gruen is keen to extend an invitation to as many local residents as possible for the next Bramley and Stanningley Ward Forum meeting on Thursday, 17 September at 7pm in the Eric Atkinson Centre.

The forum gives residents the opportunity to put their views across on issues that matter to them and have an impact on their community.

This meeting will also focus on the proposed Manor Park Wellbeing Centre in Bramley and give local people the chance to learn more about the proposals, which include a healthy eating café. A consultation event on the new centre was held in July.

Cllr Gruen (Labour, Bramley and Stanningley), who is chairing the forum, said:

“The Bramley and Stanningley Ward Forum is a fantastic opportunity for local residents to give councillors and officers their opinions on issues that have a real impact on their community. I would like to invite all local residents to come along to the Forum and find out more about what’s happening in the Bramley, Stanningley and Rodley area.

“There is so much going on locally and I am delighted that Councillors Ritchie, Heselwood and myself have the opportunity to share the information and make sure that proposals for the area really will make a positive difference for local people.”
