Last call for views on Leeds’ draft transport strategy

Leeds City Council is calling for views on its draft Connecting Leeds Transport Strategy before the consultation closes on April 11.

The council unanimously declared a climate emergency in March 2019 with the stated ambition of working to become a net zero city by 2030.

The subsequent "Big Leeds Climate Conversation" identified that 94% of respondents agreed that tackling climate change should be priority.

The draft Connecting Leeds Transport Strategy sets out how the area proposes to achieve its vision and respond to decarbonisation while also ensuring “inclusive economic growth and improved health and wellbeing across the city”.

The strategy is looking to transform Leeds to becoming a more active and green city, with less reliance on the private car.

The consultation seeks input on the suggested plans and asks what else the strategy should be considering going forward.

Leeds City Council held a series of webinars featuring experts and key stakeholders discussing the draft strategy in further detail.

The whole series is available to watch on Leeds City Council’s YouTube channel.
