With 35 sites covering 35.72 hectares, the North West Inner area has the lowest provision ratio in the district with 0.29 hectares per 1,000 population. Application of the amenity standard would indicate the largest existing deficit of 15.05 hectares of amenity space. Amenity together with Park and Gardens demonstrate a joint deficit of 34 hectares. Access to amenity space is good overall with a number of residential areas (Burley and Northern Weetwood) outside a 10 minute walk catchment to access amenity space. These residents without access to an amenity green space have good access to other Parks and Garden sites which can fulfil the function of amenity green space. The quality average for the area is 5.34, which is above the city average for amenity space which is 5.05. In this area 20% of amenity sites achieved the quality standard. The priority is raising the quality of amenity spaces.

North West Inner has the highest provision ratio at 3.19 hectares per 1,000 (0 to 16 years) population of children’s and young people’s equipped play facilities. The area also has the lowest proportion and number of 0 to 16 year olds of all areas.

Application of the standard calculates that the area has a surplus of 12 equipped play areas; the highest surplus of any area. Accessibility is fair, as the distribution of children’s play areas leaves the communities of Headingley, Burly, Ireland Wood and Weetwood without any formal equipped provision. The current quality of provision has only been assessed on the space which is not necessarily a reflection of the play facility itself. The average quality of green space sites with fixed play provision is

5.65 indicating that sites with such provision are of a slightly better quality than the average score for amenity and parks and garden sites. The priority should be to improve the distribution of children’s fixed play areas.

Performance against the city average for the quantity of outdoor sports is slightly below at 1.75 hectares per 1,000 population. It has a substantial deficit in overall outdoor sports provision of 15 hectares. This is despite the large spaces and number of outdoor sports facilities at the both university’s campus sites. However, due to larger accessibility catchments for outdoor sports facilities, the provision of the area adjacent also needs to be considered. All households are within a 10 minute drive of a council grass playing pitch and bowling green; 20 minutes drive to an athletics track, golf facility and synthetic pitch. Only the communities of Horsforth and Ireland Wood have to walk further than 20 minutes to access an outdoor tennis court. Due to the influence of privately operated outdoor sports sites (including Education Leeds) the average quality score performs well at 6.82, the highest of all areas and 50% of sites achieve the quality standard.

There are 2.29 hectares of disused allotment sites which could create up to 82 full size plots in the area which has a waiting list of 273 names. The area had the largest waiting list in 2010. The provision ratio of all sites is 0.22 hectares per 1,000 population. When considering only those sites in use, the ratio reduces to 0.2 hectares per 1,000 population. To achieve the proposed standard requires a further 4 hectares of allotment provision. It is currently planned to return the largest disused allotment site at Church Lane, Kirkstall to active use. Once quality improvements have been completed to improve security, 81 full size plots will be provided.

Residents in Little London, Weetwood, Hawksworth, Horsforth and Ireland Wood have to travel further than a 15 minute walk to access existing in use sites. The average quality score for sites in use is below average at 4.79. None of the allotment sites in the area achieve the quality standard. The study highlights the area is deficient in all aspects; the priority should be to bring disused sites back into use where appropriate, create new sites in areas of greatest deficit and improve the quality of existing sites by tackling security and facilities provision such as a water supply.

There is 2.09 hectares per 1,000 population of natural green space with a surplus of 6 hectares.

Accessibility to natural sites is good, with 78% of households within 15 minutes walk of a natural site. The communities of Little London and parts of Burley do not have access within a 15 minute walk time of a natural site. With an average quality score of 4.85 and 11% of sites meeting the quality standard the area is above average. Improving the quality of the existing spaces should be the priority focus.

Kirkstall Leisure Centre is the only council indoor leisure facility within the area, however, Holt Park Leisure Centre is near the boundary within the North West Outer area and provides facilities for households in both analysis areas. Most households have 15 to 30 minute public transport access to council sports halls, swimming pools and an indoor health and fitness gyms. Indoor bowls has poor provision, with the majority of residents living within the 45 minutes public transport access time to the facility at John Charles Centre for Sport.

North West Outer

The area has the highest quantity (118.51 hectares) of Parks and Gardens (excluding city parks) of all ten areas. Access for residents is good, with most residents having access within 15 minutes walk to a park site or multi facility recreation ground. Bramhope and Southern Rawdon is outside the 15 minute walk time catchments. Application of the standard calculates a surplus of 32 hectares.





The priority should be to raise the quality of sites, as only 13% of sites achieve the quality standard.

North West Outer has a below average provision ratio (0.35 hectares per 1,000 population) of amenity green space. Application of the amenity standard would indicate an existing deficit of 8.45 hectares. This quantitative deficiency needs to be balanced with the surplus for Parks and Gardens of 32 hectares. Access to amenity space is poor overall with several communities (Northern Otley, Bramhope, parts of Holt Park, parts of Horsforth, Rawdon and Guiseley) outside a 10 minute walk catchment to access amenity space. However, the majority of residents (excluding Bramhope and Southern Rawdon) have 10 minute walk time access to a Parks and Gardens site which can fulfil the function of amenity green space. The quality average for the area is 5.34 which is above the city average for amenity space which is 5.05. 22% of amenity sites in this area achieve the quality standard. The priority should be to raise the quality of sites.

North West Outer has an above average provision ratio of 2.02 equipped play facilities per 1,000 (0 to 16 years) population. The area also has the highest number (5) of multi use games areas in the district (20%). Application of the standard shows the area has adequate provision of facilities, although distribution could be improved. Accessibility to the children’s play areas is good. However, Southern Guiseley, parts of Rawdon, Adel, parts of Horsforth and North Western Otley do not meet the 15 minute walk time. The current quality of provision has only been assessed on the space which is not necessarily a reflection of the play facility itself. The average quality of green space sites with fixed play provision is 5.5, indicating that sites with such provision are of a slightly better quality than the average score for amenity and parks and garden sites. The priority should be to improve the quality and distribution of children’s fixed play areas.

Performance against the city average for the quantity of outdoor sports is above the standard at 2.39 hectares per 1,000 population and has the largest amount of outdoor sports provision in the district (209.05 hectares). It has a substantial surplus in overall outdoor sports provision of 48 hectares. All households are within a 10 minute drive of a council grass playing pitch and bowling green; 20 minutes drive to a golf facility and synthetic turf pitch. Only the communities of Guiseley, Yeadon and parts of Horsforth are not within a 20 minute walk time of a tennis court. Otley is not within 20 minutes drive of an Athletics track. Due to the influence of privately operated outdoor sports sites (including Education Leeds) the average quality score performs well at 6.82, with 62% of sites achieving the standard. Further sports specific demand led research needs to be undertaken to fully understand the detailed nature of the surplus.

There are 16.99 hectares of allotment sites in North West Outer, providing a provision ratio of 0.19 hectares per 1,000 population. This area has one of the largest number of people on waiting lists (273 in 2010). Application of the standard highlights a deficit of 5 hectares. Residents in Guiseley, Adel, Bramhope and Southern Rawdon have to travel further than a 15 minute walk to access existing in use sites. The average quality score for sites in use is 5.32, with 15% of sites achieving the quality standard. The priority should be to create new sites in areas of greatest deficiency and improve the quality of existing sites by tackling security and facilities provision such as a water supply.

With a provision ratio of 4.12 hectares per 1,000 population of natural green space there is a surplus of 170 hectares when compared against the proposed standard.

Accessibility to natural sites is good, with 79% of households within 15 minutes walk of a natural site. Parts of Yeadon and Guiseley do not have access within a 15 minute walk time of a natural site, however, access to the countryside and the rights of way network is very good. With an average quality score of 5.24 and 8% of sites meeting the quality standard the area is above average. Improving the quality of the existing spaces should be the priority focus.

There are three council indoor leisure facilities; Holt Park Leisure Centre, Chippendale Swimming Pool, Otley, and Aireborough Leisure Centre. Chippendale Pool is available for public use when not required by the grammar school. Most households in the area have to travel up to 30 minutes by public transport to access council sports halls, health and fitness gyms and swimming pools. This is in excess of the standard and reflects the rural location of many of the settlements in the area.

However, accessibility to public indoor bowls is very poor with the majority of households being at least 45 minutes away from the John Charles Centre by public transport.

South Inner

The area has an above standard provision ratio of 1.2 hectares of parks and gardens per 1,000 population (excluding city parks). Application of the quantity standard suggests a current surplus of 15 hectares. Access for residents is fairly good, as most households have access within 15 minutes walk to a park or multi facility recreation ground. However, the residential community in the city centre is outside the 15 minute walk time catchment. With an average quality score of 5.17 and only 5% of sites achieving the quality standard there is a need to action improvements.

South Inner has just below average ratio (0.42 hectares per 1,000 population) and quantity (31 hectares) of amenity green space. Application of the amenity standard would indicate an existing deficit of 2 hectares. However, when looked at together with Parks and Gardens, which also provides an amenity function for residents, there is a surplus of 13 hectares. The communities of Northern Hunslet and Beeston are the only residential areas outside a 10 minute walking distance from an amenity green space, however, these areas are within walking distance of Parks and Garden sites. The quality average for the area is 5.32, with 15% of sites satisfying the quality standard. The priority should be to tackle qualitative improvements.

Of all the areas, South Inner has the largest number of Multi Use Games Areas (16), almost a quarter of all Multi Use Games Area provision across Leeds. Provision in the area for all children’s and young people’s play facilities is above average with

2.23 areas per 1,000 child population. Application of the standard calculates a surplus of 3 facilities. Here 83% of households are within 15 minutes of equipped play provision, however, the distribution of children’s play areas leaves the communities of Beeston, Holbeck and Middleton outside 15 minutes walking distance standard. The average quality of green space sites with fixed play provision is 4.83 indicating that the priority should be to improve the quantity and distribution of facilities.

Performance against the city average for the quantity of outdoor sports is poor with the provision ratio (1.5 hectares per 1,000 population) being the lowest in the city. It has the highest deficit in overall outdoor sports provision at 42 hectares. However, due to larger accessibility catchments for outdoor sports facilities, those facilities of the adjacent area also need to be considered. All households are within a 10 minute drive of a council grass playing pitch and bowling green; 20 minutes drive to an athletics track, golf facility and synthetic pitch. The communities of Hunslet and Middleton have to walk further than 20 minutes to access an outdoor tennis court.

Due to the influence of privately operated outdoor sports sites (including Education Leeds and South Leeds Stadium) the average quality score performs well at 6.07, however, this is below the city average. In the area 26% of outdoor sport sites achieved the quality standard. Raising the quality of existing sites should be the priority, although some deficiencies appear to exist. Further sports specific demand led research needs to be undertaken to fully understand the detailed nature of the apparent deficit.

There are 13.08 hectares of allotments in South Inner and only one site (0.29 hectares) is not in use. The provision ratio of all sites is 0.18 hectares per 1,000 population and this is below the quantity standard. To achieve the proposed standard requires a further five hectares of allotment provision. Residents in the city centre and Middleton have to travel further than a 15 minute walk to access existing in use sites. The average quality score for sites in use is above the city average at

5.69. The priority should be to create new sites and improve the quality of existing sites by tackling security and provision of facilities such as a water supply.

There is 1.15 hectares per 1,000 population of natural green space, calculating at a deficit of 61 hectares when assessed against the standard.
