An online public meeting will discuss the future of transport in the Kirkstall Valley and the wider city.

The meeting has been organised by the Kirkstall Valley Development Trust (KVDT) and follows Leeds City Council releasing their draft transport strategy, with the ambition of Leeds becoming “a city where you don’t need a car.”

They are now consulting on this strategy and KVDT wants to get the views and ideas of people across the Kirkstall Valley, so that we can ensure that our area has a strong voice in these changes.

KVDT’s Ian Sullivan said:

“While we strongly support the council’s vision as part of its commitment to tackling the climate emergency, we know that changes to how we get about must improve life in the area.

“We’d love for you to join us to learn more about it and begin to collectively produce a response for the March 26th consultation deadline! The strategy’s good, but we want it to be even better by ensuring it meets the needs of people within our area. After an overview we’ll open space up for comments and reflections, and then dig down into what we feel is vital for any future transport strategy to address.”

The public meeting will be held on Wednesday 17th February at 6-7pm via Zoom. Sign up via Eventbrite here to receive the Zoom link.
