Welcome to the new look of the Yorkshire Evening Post. After many months of planning, listening to readers and taking feedback, we are proud to launch the latest edition of your newspaper.
This newspaper has been published in various formats for 125 years and it is still going strong.
It has seen many changes in that time, and today (January 19) marks yet another step in its evolution as we adapt to the changing way people want to read the news and sport and be informed about life in Leeds.
Over the coming days and weeks, you will see a number of new sections introduced, with a bright new layout and tone to a newspaper that champions what is good about Leeds and draws attention to what we feel needs improving.
There are new pages on traffic and travel, responding to the issues in the city, more nostalgia than we have ever run before, great new listings and ideas to go out in the city spread throughout the paper.
And plenty of opportunities for you to have a say, whether that be through the paper, online or via our Facebook page.
We have also been careful to keep the things our readers like about the newspaper.
We hope you like the changes we have made, and you will continue to help us to champion the city for many more years to come.
All the signs point to a booming city
A REPORT out today reaffirms what we are already beginning to see about Leeds, that its regeneration is well on the way.
Within five years, it is predicted that we will see jobs flood into the city, unemployment fall, and investment on an unprecedented scale.
The economy’s growth will outstrip other cities as the Northern powerhouse begins to take command.
As we look around Leeds we can already see how this has begun to take shape, with the Arena, Trinity shopping centre and the Victoria shopping development. There is still much to do, but the scale of ambition can be seen and can be achieved.
