Connecting Leeds

31 August 2020 lip Comments Off

Connecting Leeds is Leeds City Council’s ambition to transform travel in Leeds for people who live, work in and visit the city. In 2016, they started their biggest-ever transport conversation in which over 8,000 people told them what’s important to them and for Leeds. In response to this they worked with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and other partners to produce the Leeds Transport Strategy. LIP have been the key engagement partner on this project since 2017.

Reviewing the “Connecting Leeds” engagement processes in July 2018, the Chair of Leeds Transport Expert Advisory Panel, Nigel Foster, commented that the consultation through “Connecting Leeds was regarded as a leading approach” and “it was the finest example of engaging people in the UK”.
