Public asked for help over future of Yeadon Tarn
11:02am Tuesday 18th March 2014 in Local news
A vision for Yeadon Tarn will be considered at a public meeting in March.
Otley and Yeadon councillor Ryk Downes has organised the meeting to find out what people want for the tarn. People who use the tarn have been invited and Leeds City Council officers will also be in attendance to listen to the views of the public.
The meeting will be held in The Wharfedale Room of Yeadon Town Hall at 7pm on Thursday, March 20.
Coun Downes said: “Yeadon Tarn currently plays host to over a million visitors a year, however many of them have said that whilst it is a beautiful destination, it could offer more.
" In response to residents’ calls for improvement to the children’s play area, we have identified funding to re-equip the park, which is great news for children.
Otley and Yeadon councillor Colin Campbell said: “Over the years we have managed to find funding for new toilets, improvements to the fish breeding area and picnics area.”
Fellow ward councillor Sandy Lay said: “Yeadon Tarn is the jewel in Yeadon’s crown and is used by residents from near and far.
“It is for this reason it needs more investment and why Coun Downes needs to hear what residents and users want.”
