Why do we need a plan?
Holbeck has gone through many changes in its history. From its origins as a small village built around the ancient Holbeck Moor, it grew massively to become a booming industrial area. However, in the 20th Century industry went into sharp decline and ever since, Holbeck has struggled with a legacy of complex environmental, social and economic problems. Since 2012 local residents have been working hard on the Holbeck Neighbourhood Plan, which aims to tackle these issues and encourage positive developments such as the recent housing constructions, which are helping to regenerate the area.
We want Holbeck to have:
- Good quality and affordable housing
- A wide range of shops and services that suit local needs.
- A safe attractive environment
- Thriving local businesses
- Better connections for pedestrians cyclists and public transportin the area between Holbeck and the city centre and adjacent neighbourhoods.
To do all of this we need your help. The Plan is for everyone in Holbeck. It is created democratically and there will be a vote in the Autumn of 2017 when we will be asking everyone who lives and works in the area to formally approve it.
