“Consultation will form a very important role in developing the site allocation plan and plans for the future.
“We want to hear resident’s thoughts and ideas about what will work best for the city as we move forward.
“The consultation will offer people the opportunity to better understand the challenges that the proposed scale of growth presents and allow them to get involved and influence the future plan.
“I would like to encourage as many people as possible to get involved and have their say on plans for their local area. This is an important time for Leeds as we plan for the future, and large areas of growth.”
