Leeds Sustainable Development Group in partnership with the GORSE Academies Trust which oversees the Morley and Farnley Academies in Leeds are working together on plans for the regeneration of part of Leeds City Centre South. Our proposal for opening one of the largest Free Schools in the country in the centre of Leeds will be a catalyst for the transformation of this area.
The Leeds Sustainable Development Group (LSDG) invited individual landowners and relevant representatives of Leeds City Council, with an interest in the area of Leeds, South of the River Aire, defined as Leeds City Centre South, to contribute to an informal discussion about the opportunities in the area. The meeting, hosted by Carlsberg UK, took place at Tetley’s House located at the centre of the land designated as a ‘City Centre Park’ as part of Leeds City Council’s South Bank Planning Statement issued in July, 2010.
LSDG is hosting a meeting to discuss the future development of the City Centre South. All landowners with an interest in the area are invited to attend. The LSDG remains determined not to allow the huge opportunity provided for the future development of Leeds City Centre not to be lost through any lack of vision and action.
