Share your visions for the future of Leeds

Have your say

High profile figures in Leeds are urging residents to share their visions for the future of the city.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has launched a major new survey to find out what sort of city readers want to live in.

We are giving our readers the opportunity to tell us their vision for the city and create a snapshot of life in Leeds.

And the results of the survey will be handed to the people who run the city to help them address some of the issues that matter most to YEP readers.


Lord Mayor of Leeds Councillor Thomas Murray said: “This survey is a good opportunity for people living in Leeds to give their views on some important issues in our city.

“I hope they take the chance to be part of the Leeds 2014 Survey and I look forward to seeing the results.”

Gary Verity, the chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, added: “It is important the people of Leeds have their say in how they would like Leeds to look in the future.

“The city has so much to offer and together I believe we can make it even better – for the people who live here and those who visit.”

And this week the YEP is set to run a series of features highlighting some of the main issues we are raising in our survey.

We want to find out your thoughts about traffic and transport and what changes you would enforce to make Leeds an even better place to live in.

We also want to know how clean and tidy you think your neighbourhood is and whether you feel safe on the streets.

We want to find out whether families in the city are struggling to make ends meet and are being forced to turn to foodbanks for support.

We are urging readers to tell us their thoughts about parking charges and whether there should be more cycle lanes in the city.

The results from our Leeds 2014 Survey, which will run for two weeks, will be compiled into a dossier and handed to the agencies who run the city.

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