Deadline approaches for YEP 2014 Survey completion

Have your say

Readers have just under one week to tell the Yorkshire Evening Post their thoughts about living in Leeds.

Hundreds of readers have already told us their visions for the future of the city.


Results from our Leeds 2014 Survey, which is set to run until Monday, will be compiled into a dossier and handed to the agencies who run the city.

The YEP will then analyse all of the responses from readers and then call for change on the big issues affecting Leeds on behalf of our readers.

We want to find out if residents think crime is a major issue in Leeds and whether they think it is a safer place to live than other cities across the country.

We also want to find out whether readers think the cycling provision needs to be boosted and would they be willing to pay more in council tax if it paid for improvements to transport.

Our Leeds 2014 Survey also gives readers the chance to find out what changes they would like to see in Leeds and what they would change if they ran the city for the day.

Leeds City Council’s chief executive Tom Riordan welcomed the initiative and said: “This survey will provide a fresh insight into what matters to the citizens of Leeds.

“It will be of great interest to the council and other organisations who are working to make Leeds the best city it can be.

“We consult on many different issues, and this YEP survey will complement and add real value to that work.”
