Kirkstall Valley Development Trust: Become member-owner at launch


Fancy becoming an owner-member of the Kirkstall Valley Development Trust? A meeting later this month will give you the chance. The trust is a community benefit society set up in 2016 to develop a learning and leisure park over 200 acres of inner West Leeds. CHRIS HILL has the details …

It’s easy. Just go to and click on ‘become a member’. It only costs £10.

We need your help in shaping up our ideas about the community facilities, accommodation and the Future Cities Centre that we plan for Abbey Mills.

It’s not just we want to spread ownership and involvement in the Trust, it’s an important way of convincing funders of our popular backing.

Good progress is being made with the council, Heritage Lottery and Architectural Heritage Fund. We can make this happen.

Details of our launch meeting are below. We are also going to be having a community share issue in February to give us some working capital and enable us to do the development work for the mill.

The trust’s launch meeting will be at Milford Sports Club, Beecroft Street, Leeds, LS5 3AS at 7.30pm on Tuesday 31st January.

Come and discuss the plans for Abbey Mills and St Anns Mill. What we hope to do and how we intend to raise the money. We need your views on what should be in the mills.
