Pudsey: Chance to get involved with Greenside Greenway campaign

A campaign to create a greenway linking Pudsey to Tyersal will hold a public meeting to plot its next steps forward.

The Greenside Greenway group wants to create a greenway for use by walkers, runners, cyclists, and horse riders.

Land next to historic Greenside Tunnel has recently been developed into housing and the developer applied to tip the spoil into the tunnel cutting.

Despite receiving over 60 objections, Leeds City Council allowed the partial infill of the cutting.

However, this spurred on a small group of Pudsey residents who want to see the tunnel restored as an asset for the local community. Last year plans to completely fill in the cutting were refused by Leeds City Council following hundreds of objections.

The Greenside Greenway Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday, 9 March at The Royal Hotel, Station Street at 7.30pm.

This is a public meeting and all are welcome to attend.

Among the business to be conducted, the AGM will:

  • Updates on all the group’s activities.
  • Proposal to apply for charity status and elect Trustees.
  • Elect trustee/committee members for 2020-21.
  • Consider and agree new constitution

Invited speakers, including Cllr Peter Carlill, Lead Member for Active Travel for Leeds City Council and member of West Yorkshire Combined Authority.
