In an interview broadcast this morning on Radio Aire, Councillor Richard Lewis, the head of Highways said about the trolleybus scheme:

“There are a lot of pluses that come with it as well in terms of us getting a pocket park down at St Michael’s church which is a big improvement; improvements to Woodhouse Moor, part of it is fairly grim for an urban environment.”

Featured above is a photo of part of the Moor which Councillor Lewis has de-classified as ‘park’ so that it can be appropriated for the trolleybus scheme.

The pocket park referred to by Councillor Lewis would be a traffic island on Headingley Hill bordered by the A660 and the trolleybus route. How could this possibly compensate for the loss of sections Woodhouse Moor, the oldest, most historic and intensively used park in Leeds?
