Site built and maintained by Steve Taylor
Welcome to the West Park Residents Association website
This site is intended to provide a source of information about the West Park and Spen Lane area and events which affect the residents.
Use the links across the top and side of the page to find the information you are looking for.
As well as us telling you things, the Association is also interested in hearing from you with reminiscences about your life in West Park so that we can share these with local residents. The best way to do this is via an email to email@example.com we will then telephone you to discuss how we can work together to put your reminiscences on the web site.
The Association is always interested to hear from residents about how the web site could be improved, so if you have any ideas or comments email these to us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Association is heavily involved in the discussions concerning the New Generation Transport (NGT) proposals for Leeds which will greatly affect West Park and the environment we live in. After consultation with our members and several local meetings between residents and Leeds City Council representatives the Association is opposed to the proposals in their present form.
Our position on this opposition can be found on NGT a time for ACTION and by following the links given on that page to our analysis and that of others.
The Transport and Works Act Order (TWAO) has now been published and residents have until 31 October 2013 to respond to the proposals. Details of how to do this is also found on the page NGT a time for ACTION and it is essential that you act now or the scheme will be rubberstamped through. You can fill in our Survey by clicking on NGT questionnaire but you should also comment individually as this will carry much more weight.
If you have not sent your comments/objections to the Secretary of State concerning the NGT proposals then you need to do this by 31 October 2013. Details of how can be found on NGT a time for ACTION. WPRA and Weetwood RA held two public meetings which gave an analysis of the NGT proposals. These meetings were extremely well attended and good audience participation enabled the sharing of views.
As you can see from the paragraphs above, the Transport and Works Act Order for the trolleybus scheme has been published and the consultation process is now in progress. You have until 31 October 2013 to respond with your opinions and you can see detailed information on the process on NGT - a time for ACTION.
After the overwhelming turnout at the last presentation we are pleased to announce that A660 Joint Council is repeating the "Whither the trolleybus" presentation at the HEART centre on Bennett Road. There will be a donation box on the door to cover expenses, including room hire.
