SECOND PUBLIC OPEN DAY – 12th October 2013 – all welcome

Everyone is welcome to our next event on Saturday, 12th October from 10.00am until 4.00pm at Adel St John Church of England, Primary School, Long Causeway, Leeds LS16 8EX.

Drop in to suit your time commitments, bring the family and learn about the latest news on land developments and research findings.  The Adel Neighbourhood Forum has been set up to give a renewed sense of ownership to the Adel Community and ensure that local people have a strong influence on the future of our area.

The first successful Open Day was held in April 2013 when a number of important issues were identified. As a result we have set up Focus Groups to look at housing; traffic and transport; green space and the environment; businesses and local services including education, health and leisure.  We now want to feed back our findings and need your help to discuss them in more detail so that we can create a Neighbourhood Plan. There will be a chance for people to discuss these issues in detail with Members of the Forum including Councillor Barry Anderson.

Major concerns have been expressed that local services are already working to capacity and that these may be stretched to breaking point when new developments take place.

What should the future of Adel look like? Join us at this event and complete our simple survey on what local people value, what changes you would like to see and how your housing needs are likely to change in the future.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with your views or interest on these or indeed on any relevant issues.  I hope to see you on 12th October.
