West Leeds: Six community schemes in line for council cash

Football changing rooms in Wortley and tree planting at the Ring Road in Farsley are just two West Leeds projects which could be awarded council cash.

Councillors on Leeds City Council’s Outer West Community Committee are set to decide whether the following projects should receive council funding at the Committee’s meeting on Monday.

Projects aiming to gain funding include:

Changing facilities at Wortley FC

The club has asked for £2,500 for materials for joinery, electrical, plumbing, plastering, flooring and decorating to complete the interiors of their new changing rooms building off Blue Hill Lane. Labour will be carried out by volunteer tradesmen.

Leeds Watch

£5,000 to fund CCTV in Calverley & Farsley, Farnley & Wortley and Pudsey wards. The funding would be for the monitoring, maintenance and BT fibre costs for these cameras.

Calverley & Farsley Speed Indication Devices

£18,400 to fund to supply and install five Speed Indicator Devices with extra brackets to help reduce speeding in Calverley and Farsley ward.

Old Farnley & District Community Association

£1,350 to buy 50 new chairs for the Community Centre, which hosts clubs, classes and coffee mornings.

Park Safe at Farsley Westroyd

This project would raise awareness by identifying places where parents should not park by using the child shaped road signs near Farsley Westroyd School and Nursery. This may reduce speed of drivers using Frances Street.

Farsley Ring Road Tree Planting

The £12,000 project is to plant trees at either side of the Ring Road at Farsley.

Summer Bands 2020 are seeking an agreement in principle for £3,250 funding from the 2020/21 wellbeing budget to fund ten concerts in the Outer West area in 2020.

The next Outer West Community Committee meeting is on Monday, 4 November 2019 at Pudsey Civic Hall (1pm). Anti-social behaviour in Pudsey town centre is also on the agenda.

Community Committees hold at least four public meetings a year, where ward councillors make decisions about services and priorities for the local area.

The committee also allocates funding every year to both community projects and youth activities. Small grants of up to £500 and large grants over £500 are available.

The Outer West Community Committee is made up of councillors from Pudsey, Calverley & Farley and Farnley & Wortley wards.
