I was approached by a local resident to ask what was the purpose of the digging that had been occurring at the above location. I took this up with Parks & Countryside and I have received the following update from the Acting Area Officer:
“The area in question is a new outdoor gym and fitness area that was originally going to run along the edge of the field on Otley old road . The plan went back to consultation and it was decided that Farrar Lane would be a more suitable site. The site will consist of 4 pieces of outdoor gym equipment set in a wooden edged area with a sandstone base with a hard wearing golden gravel finish surface.”
The reason why I have not been able to consult with you about it is that this land lies in Weetwood Ward and therefore Adel & Wharfedale Ward Councillors were not involved in it and I only got knowledge of it yesterday due to a local resident asking what was being built there. However, I thought you would be interested to know.
