People living in Armley, Bramley & Stanningley and Kirkstall wards can have their say on travel and safety issues in their community, thanks to a public consultation which launched yesterday.
The ‘Leeds Streets for All’ consultation is run by Leeds City Council. It aims to get people’s views on the travel issues they face in their local area and people’s responses will help prioritise improvements, when funding becomes available.
The consultation is categorised under five themes they can comment on:
- vehicles and parking
- walking and wheeling (including accessibility, prams, wheelchairs and scooters)
- accessing bus stops and rail stations
- the street environment
The public can drop a pin on any of the five maps and select from a list of options of issues (or add something else). The council will then collate the feedback and use it to help the authority prioritise improvements, as and when funding becomes available.
You can find out more at the live consultation webpage.

A council spokesperson said: “Leeds City Council want to hear from residents in Armley, Bramley & Stanningley, and Kirkstall on any issues related to travel in your community.
“This could be about how you access public transport facilities, whether you feel unsafe walking, wheeling or cycling, the attractiveness of a street, or where traffic and speeding are causing issues.
“We plan on rolling out this consultation to all of the Leeds wards consecutively next year – you can find our homepage here with further info.”
The consultation is open until Sunday, 17 December.
