Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves is hosting a second public meeting as part of the Armley Town Street Revival Plan at 5pm on Thursday 19 November at Armley Library.

The newly formed community action group, All Together Armley, will submit their plans to the public on how Town Street can be improved.

In an email to local residents, Ms Reeves said:

“Since the public meeting we held in September, I am delighted to see that All Together Armley has been developed as a representative body to bring the positive change we all want to see on Town Street.

“With the support of Leeds City Council and the Armley councillors, local residents have sat down and started to map out what they want to see change in the area.

“It’s great that the focus of their activities is around how to make the space more welcoming by dealing with anti-social behaviour, street drinking and attracting new businesses and services.

“It would be great if everyone coming to the public meeting on 19th November came with a positive idea that they can feed into the plans being drawn up by All Together Armley.”

Representatives from West Yorkshire Police, local councillors and Leeds City Council officers will also be in attendance.

As reported on The Dispatch, Town Street has been struggling with anti-social behaviour, crime, street drinkers and litter. The strategy is a result of a survey of Armley shoppers and residents which highlighted local concerns.
