New play equipment and toilets amongst projects awaiting council grants in ‘inner west’ Leeds

New play equipment at a Kirkstall playground, a new toilet at Hollybush conservation centre and sports activities in Burley and Hyde Park are three projects which could receive money from councillors next week.

Members of the council’s inner west community committee will meet at Armley Hub on Tuesday, 22 November at 6pm to discuss a raft of local issues in Armley, Bramley & Stanningley and Kirkstall wards.

These include three grant applications, including:

Leeds Hyde Park Sports Club – £3,700

To expand sport activity to the wider community, increase the number of young people involved in football and sport due to high demand in the area.

The Conservation Volunteers, New Toilet Block – £3,000

The funding would go towards a ‘fit for purpose’ toilet block, which will reduce stress around queuing for a toilet for the very young, anxious or disabled, allow handwashing after activities separate from the toilets; support further increase in site activities and replace temporary portaloos.

Sandford Play Area Refurbishment – £5,187.06 

To refurbish the play area at Sandford Road, Kirkstall. Works include refurbishing the basket swing, ball wall, some fitness equipment and the safety surface under the zip wire.

Since the last Community Committee meeting in September 2022, the following projects have been considered and approved by council officers:

  • Bramley Baths New Pool Cover: £6,236
  • Sandford Road parkland boundary fence: £11,994.

The inner west community committee is made up of nine councillors and community co-optees. Check out all of West Leeds Dispatch‘s coverage of the committee here.
