Leeds Council proposals for the A660 corridor

LCC have published a set of proposals for changes to the A660 through our area and they are asking for public comments. The details of the proposals can be found on with some WPRA comments on our FaceBook page

In particular there is a public meeting about these proposals at St Chad's Parish Centre, 10am - 2pm, this coming Saturday (30-06-2018).

If you cannot make this meeting then dates and locations are:

The proposals include new traffic lights, bus lanes, cycle paths and the closing of some roads so its important that you let the council have your views.

Spate of Burglaries

Please be aware that there have been several break-ins recently in the area, including two on Helmsley Road and one on Northholme Avenue. It appears they are targeting cars and whatever they can fit into them. At one of them they were disturbed having gained entry via a side window. The police have a useful list of tips at this link , such as "Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)".

Every effort has been made to try to ensure that the information provided on this website is correct. If it is felt that any detail is incorrect, please contact us at
