I visited the area on Friday, got the no 2 bus up Harrogate Road in the afternoon. The road was still coned off following the funeral of a Moortown resident.
Moortown Primary School is a fine stone building with a green space behind it. There has been a planning isssue regarding this and Leeds council have made an announcement regarding gifted land.
Leeds council is to consult residents on the use of this land in the near future.
When a similar issue happened in Tinshill, it was agreed that part of the recreation ground would be fenced off, and reserved for Ralph Thoresby High School.
When the school is closed, the field is unlocked and residents can use it. This compromise has worked, could this be a way forward for Moortown?
