I am staggered at the views of Dr Kevin Grady, of Leeds Civic Trust, expressed in your article of June 28.
Headingley and areas beyond still thrive because so far they have managed to retain their heritage and the residents are very proud to live there. The reason why the other areas sited need to be revitalised, is that they have lost their heritage. The old wasteland of Clarence Dock has been replaced with a newly built wasteland, not user friendly either by car or public transport.
I cannot imagine that those people travelling faster into Leeds on the proposed new system will continue their journey on a regular basis into Belle Isle, Hunslet or indeed, the waterfront.
In virtually everywhere in Leeds, Headingley included, the main bugbear in my opinion is parking.
