Kirkstall District Centre plans to be discussed at forum

Housing proposals on the site of the former Kirkstall District Centre will be one of the items on the agenda at the next Kirkstall Neighbourhood Forum meeting.

The forum – on Monday 17 September in Leeds Postal Sports Association Club on Beecroft Street (7.30pm) – will discuss the impact of the development in the area, including the likely affect of traffic on already congested streets.

As reported earlier this month, Artisan Real Estate want to buy the land from owners Leeds City Council and Tesco transform the area into 266 apartments and 35 town houses – a full planning application is expected in the autumn.

Kirkstall Neighbourhood Forum will also discuss the possibility of linking the development to the creation of a new riverside public park on 25 acres of Leeds City Council land in the Kirkstall Valley.

Kirkstall Valley walk

The forum has also organised a series of guided walks through the Kirkstall Valley, so that people can be aware of the risks and opportunities that presently exist. The next walk is scheduled for 2pm today (Sunday, 29 July), with a visit to Kirkstall Valley Nature Reserve.

The Reserve is managed by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, to the west of the River Aire, but it overlooks the land in Kirkstall that could become a new public park.

Meet at 2pm at the prominent single track steel road bridge that carries Redcote Lane across the River Aire.

The forum meets regularly to form a neighbourhood plan for Kirkstall, which will set out a vision for future development in the area.
