Welcome to the North West Leeds Transport Forum (NWLTF).
NWLTF was established to provide a forum for discussion of transport issues affecting North West Leeds. It draws its membership from local resident and community associations, and liaises closely with local businesses. Its objective is to help and support local communities to evaluate the likely effects of transport proposals on their area and to be pro-active in identifying desirable changes.

Following earlier work prompted by residents of North West Leeds over aircraft noise,
NWLTF have written to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) requesting for a call in of the proposal
for changes in the Leeds Bradford Airspace on the grounds that they will affect a significant
number of residents with an increase in aircraft noise.
Details of the letters can be found here .
Following concerns expressed by residents of North West Leeds over aircraft noise, NWLTF have written to the
Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) objecting to the proposed changes in the Leeds Bradford Airspace on the grounds
that they are likely to result in a significant increase in aircraft noise over North West Leeds and that
the public consultation exercise conducted in 2017 was deficient.
The NWLTF submission has been acknowledged by the CAA who have indicated that they will take it into consideration as part of their regulatory decision-making process.
The NWLTF objection, together with an executive summary, can be viewed here. The NWLTF objection letters which have been sent to the Civil Aviation Authority can be found in the Documents section and are available here and here.
In the light of concerns about levels of aircraft noise over North Leeds during Summer 2018, NWLTF have asked for a meeting with representatives of the Airport to discuss these concerns and to seek further information about the proposed changes in take-off paths and plans for further expansion of the airport.
Leeds City Council have produced revised proposals for changes at Holt Lane and Otley Old Rd on the Connecting Leeds website proposals.
After careful consideration and consultation with member organisations, NWLTF issued its response to the City Council's initial proposals for schemes along the A660.
