A Bigger Picture – David Hockney

Last night’s Aireborough Neighbourhood Development Forum 2015 Member’s AGM,  in the Methodist Church, Yeadon was held a year after the Forum received designation from Leeds City Council to do a Neighbourhood Plan.  With people from all over the area, and Councillors from both Wards the AGM looked at:-

  • Work done between September 2014 – June 2015 – presentation here.
  • The Aireborough Landscape Character Project* – presentation here
  • The Leeds North West Country Park Project – presentation here
  • Next Steps for the Aireborough Neighbourhood Plan  2015 (Contained in work done presentation)

We also heard about the growth in Community Engagement – but still a lot to do,  and the improvement in finances and funding for the work ahead.
