Everyone in Headingley agrees that we suffer transport problems, pedestrians, cyclists, bus users, drivers. But transport is not strictly a planning matter. So Headingley Neighbourhood Plan will include, among its Projects, proposals to improve travel locally, a Headingley Transport Plan.
The Transport Plan has been prepared by the North West Leeds Transport Forum at the request of Headingley Neighbourhood Forum, and will be recommended to Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Combined Authority. It has been drafted by Peter Bonsall, Professor Emeritus at the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds, with input on Public Rights of Way from Lee Davidson, Footpaths Secretary of the Leeds Group of the Ramblers Association (both are local residents).
The Transport Plan began with a meeting at HEART on 28 April 2015, when Headingley Transport Options were outlined and debated; and participants were invited to give detailed Feedback. Further local meetings were held, and further comments received.
