Leeds – the Liveable city: competition
We also be launching a competition to show how a part of the city could be transformed with the practical application of the key principles in our Transport Vision. We will invite members of the public, stakeholders and businesses to re-imagine a key part of the city now dominated by highways as an attractive, green and people friendly place with good pedestrian, cycling and public transport links. The area we have chosen is the east side of inner city Leeds – an area that is dominated but has the potential to be transformed. Following a series of workshops, the most compelling ideas will be drawn together in a report to be produced by professionals, and this will be presented to Leeds City Council.
