Pressure building against Eastgate
Following our urgent action appeal for supporters to object to the proposed Eastgate development, the campaign has hit the media.
Guardian Leeds published a story on Thursday 21 April – Kirkgate market group opposes ‘major threat’ of £600m Eastgate development
Yorkshire Evening Post published a front page splash on Friday 22 April – Hung, Drawn and Quartered
Tomorrow (Saturday 23 April) sees us flyering the Market traders with information about Eastgate. In the meantime, objections and critical responses to the proposed development continue to come in. You can read these and continue to track the planning application online here
We will shortly be providing a summary of responses by some of the major consultees to the development, which highlight some of the real problems with the proposals and reinforce our arguments.
