Kirkstall Valley: Have your say on improving parks and green spaces

16 September 2015

A partnership of four environmental organisations is hoping to improve the parks and green spaces for people and wildlife in the Kirkstall Valley area – and wants YOUR ideas to help their project become a reality.

Members of Armley Forum heard last night that a potential project is asking residents living in the Kirkstall, Armley and Bramley & Stanningley wards what they would like to see happen that would help them connect with their greenspaces.

The project, which is seeking funding, involves the Conservation Volunteers at Hollybush, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Groundwork and Leeds council, is currently seeking funding and has launched a public consultation to help shape the bid.

A Yorkshire Wildlife Trust spokeswoman told the forum:

“We want local people to help design our project. We could run events in pocket parks, run environmental events and educational sessions and help people to be more healthy and active in their community.

“What would you like to see happen close to you? Would you like to use greenspaces more, come to wildlife themed events, attend training sessions, volunteer at a local greenspace, grow food or something else?

“We want your feedback on what is important to you. “

A consultation event is taking place at Hollybush Conservation Centre, Broad Lane, Kirkstall on Tuesday, 20 October between 1-3pm, 4-6pm and 7-9pm.
