Consultation on Speed and Parking Restrictions on Main Street

The Parish Council has been invited to respond to Leeds City Council’s proposals to introduce a traffic management scheme in Shadwell.

The proposals consists of:

  • A 20mph speed limit on a section of Main Street, near Shadwell Primary School. This will also extend to cover Blind Lane, Hastings Court, Manor Court and Church Farm Garth.
  • Double yellow line parking restrictions around the junction of Manor Court, Church Farm Garth and a section on Main Street opposite the primary school.
  • Residents Only Parking on Manor Court and Church Farm Garth, weekdays only, 8.00am – 9.30am and 2.30pm – 4.00pm.

The City Council has developed these proposals  to address concerns raised by residents, ward members and the Parish Council in connection with parking and traffic near the primary school.

Details are shown on the attached plan: LCC Consultation July 2017

The consultation period is short and the Parish Council has been asked to respond by 1st August 2017.

If you would like us to include your views please please e-mail them to Mike Woods, the Clerk to the Parish Council as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Update on the East Leeds Orbital Road and the East Leeds Extension

Leeds City Council is arranging a further round of engagement events to share information and gain views on the East Leeds Orbital Road and the Supplementary Planning Document that will provide formal planning guidance to ensure essential community infrastructure for the area is delivered alongside new housing. The road is expected to run just to the south of the Parish, but the road itself, and the accompanying large-scale residental development, will undoubtedly have an impact upon Shadwell village.

The City Council is distributing a leaflet which provides details of some engagement events. The following events havealeady been planned, but it is possible that further sessions will be added.

  • Monday 24th July, 3.30 – 18.30: Wellington Hill
  • Tuesday 25th July, 3.30 – 20.00: Crossgates Methodist Hall
  • Wednesday 26th July, 3.30 – 20.00: FHC Community Centre
