Have your say

LEEDS residents are being invited to have a say on proposals to create two new rail stations in the city.

People are being invited to give feedback on proposals for new stations at White Rose and Thorpe Park as part of a Connecting Leeds bid to improve transport in the city

The proposals have been put forward by Leeds City Council and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, working closely with the rail industry, Rail North, the Leeds transport advisory panel and other local stakeholders.

Public engagement on the proposals started this week and ends on Friday July 27.

There will also be a series of a drop-in events across Leeds starting next Tuesday when plans will be on show and representatives from Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Combined Authority will be available to answer questions.

Coun Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member for regeneration, transport and planning, said: “These two new station proposals are part of our exciting Connecting Leeds vision for improved transport in the city which features significant investment in major new infrastructure.

“These stations are planned to meet the needs of people travelling to and from two areas of employment growth in the city at Thorpe Park and White Rose.”
