ADEL GETS A NEW BUS SHELTER

New Bus Shelter 033Many years of trying to obtain a bus shelter to be erected on Sir George Martin Drive off Adel Wood Estate to provide excellent exposure to local residents and vehicular traffic to give something to look at while waiting for the bus but unfortunately was turned down due to lack of space on the footpath and too near the communal grassed area.

We understand that our local Councillor recently put forward a request to Metro who then did a survey and agreed to erect the new bus shelter which has now been completed.

Listed below are some of the comments made by local residents:

“The shelter looks good and it gives undercover from the rain and the wind.”

“I can sit down and sunbathe while waiting for the bus.”

“I think the shelter is too small and should have been much bigger.”

“Found the shelter too small but it is better than nothing at all.”

In summary we feel that the bus shelter has made a vast improvement for all to benefit from the weather elements to all who have need to use the bus service.

We wish to thank our local Councillor Barry Anderson and Metro for their help and support in this matter for which we most appreciate.

Battle to save trio of Leeds fields from development moves up a gear

HousingRESIDENTS of a Leeds village were last night gathering in force to show their opposition to a major housing development on a trio of local green fields.

People power has already led to significant amendments to the originally planned 370-home project for Church Fields in East Ardsley, South Leeds.

The number of proposed homes has been slashed to 299 after more than 330 people submitted official objections about impact on infrastructure and the size of the development. Developer Barratt Homes has also reserved two hectares of land to be used as a school.

The updated proposals will be debated by Leeds council’s City Plans Panel on Thursday, with a full decision later this year.

Local Labour councillor Lisa Mulherin said: “It is positive that the developers have responded to some of the concerns. In particular, it is good to see that they have reduced number of houses and accepted the need for a new primary school.
