Subsequent to the Trust statement of 24 December 2021 the developer has now indicated that the works to the canal swing bridge have been delayed possibly for several months.
Currently the Trust has no detailed information about the reason for the delay but has been assured that the developer is preparing a revised proposal. The Trust is working closely with local councillors, Leeds City Council planning officers and Yorkshire Water to ensure rapid progress is made to protect the interests of the Reserve, its users and local communities.
The Sunday opening will continue for a trial period with access via the canal towpath.
The Trust will continue to post information as soon as it becomes available.
