West Ardsley Village

Welcome to the West Ardsley community (WF3)

Housing at Haigh Wood Site

Two years ago a planning application for 299 houses was published by Leeds City Council,

Yesterday that housing application was turned down by Leeds City Council Councillors.

West Ardsley Action group would like to thank EVERYONE who has been involved, those who have written objection letters, those who attended meetings, those who asked questions, those who displayed posters, those who were in the leaflet delivery army, those who came out on the site visits and protests and those who came to the council offices yesterday showing their support for the village and the green spaces of West Ardsley.

An incredibly huge thank you to those on the steering committee who spent hours writing technical objections and who found holes in the councils documents.

It has certainly proved that West Ardsley community spirit is alive and well.

Thank you

Ardsley Reservoir

Yorkshire Water have now made the decision to close Ardsley Reservoir

Please do not visit

The government direction is clear – do not drive to exercise- despite this and the fact Yorkshire water have blocked the car park, every day numerous cars are still arriving at the reservoir and are blocking the lane to the reservoir, which is an access road to residents and also Haighmoor Rd is being blocked, effecting residents and other road users including buses.

Please be sensible – please be safe
