Problems with anti-social behaviour from people riding quadbikes and motorbikes at a West Leeds beauty spot could be at an end.
Bikers will be prevented from gaining access to the Post Hill nature area after Cllr Matt Gibson (Lab, Farnley & Wortley) arranged for a ‘kissing gate’ to be installed at an entrance near Pudsey Road.
Walkers and local residents had complained to about dangerous bikers tearing around the site at the western end of Farnley, putting their families at risk.
Post Hill is a designated Leeds Nature Area on the western end of Farnley, and partly in Pudsey.
While you’re here…
Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!
There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.
We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.
And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.
To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!
And we need YOUR help to continue …
For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).
As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.
Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.
