Hundreds of YEP readers share their vision for Leeds

Have your say

hundreds of readers have already told us their visions for the future of Leeds.

And today we are urging even more people to have their say to help shape the city’s future.

More than 1,100 YEP readers have already told us what changes they would like to see and how they could make Leeds an even better place to live in.


Our Leeds 2014 Survey has already received backing from the city’s student population and politicians.

But we want to make sure that people of all ages have their say about how safe they feel in Leeds.

We also want to find out how well you know your neighbours and whether people think their streets are clean and tidy.

YEP editor Jeremy Clifford said: “The people of Leeds are rightly proud of the city they live in but there is always scope for improvement.

“We want to reflect those wishes and work with the authorities that run this great city to help shape the services you want in the future.

“Now is the best time to have your say as those authorities begin to shape their budgets for the years ahead.

“We urge you to join in the survey and to have your say.”

Results from our Leeds 2014 Survey, which is set to run for two weeks, 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/

The newspaper will then call for change about the big issues affecting the area on behalf of our readers.

The Leeds 2014 Survey is set to finish on Monday, March 3.
