Whilst the main Moor is in Little London and Woodhouse ward, Cinder Moor and Monument Moor are in Headingley and Hyde Park ward. This is why responsibility for the scalping of Cinder Moor rests with the Headingley councillors pictured above. All three of them will have been emailed by officers at Parks and Countryside about the proposal, prior to giving it their approval. In making their decision, it’s unlikely they took into account the council’s own figures which show that the former Hyde Park and Woodhouse ward, which comprised the Moor and the areas surrounding the Moor, had a death rate from respiratory disease three times the Leeds average. But then how can we expect councillors whose primary interest is Headingley, to know details such as this about neighbouring Hyde Park and Woodhouse.
