A start date for work to transform an area opposite Pudsey Parish Church into a Jubilee pocket park has been revealed.

The scheme will transform a small piece of land, which has been used as an informal parking area, into a garden featuring planting and two commemorative benches marking the late Queen’s platinum jubilee.

Contractors Colas are set to start on site Monday, 26 June.

A council spokesperson added: “Some programming matters relating to other schemes ended up pushing this back slightly but we have a fixed date, the road permits are in place and the contractor is resourced up to start.”

Cllr Simon Seary (Cons, Pudsey) welcomed the start of work. He said: “I’m looking forward to the work actually starting, which will see the small waste land transformed into a small pocket park in front of Pudsey Parish Church.”

WLD reported in February that the final scheme had been signed off by council chiefs, following delays and some local opposition to the loss of the informal parking spaces.
