Do you live in and around Mabgate or have an interest in the area? We’d love to hear your views on what makes Mabgate great, what could be improved and what is important to you for the future of the area.

Use the Your Views tool to complete the survey and really tell us your thoughts on Mabgate. Use the Your Space tool below to tell us about your favourite place, or areas you think need improvement. Use the Your Ideas tool to tell us about any bright ideas you have for Mabgate.

What is this all about?

Mabgate is one of the most historic areas in Leeds, with a rich and diverse history and a unique identity. It is home to a mix of businesses and educational establishments alongside cultural organisations and a vibrant creative community. It also provides a crucial physical link to Leeds city centre for the communities of Lincoln Green and Burmantofts, with a range of sustainable brownfield sites providing potential for new development opportunities.

In light of these successes and the potential new growth in Mabgate, Leeds City Council are planning to co-produce - in collaboration with local community, landowners, existing businesses and all other interested parties - a regeneration framework that will lay out an action plan and shared set of ambitions for the future of Mabgate.

This will aim to make sure that growth happening in Mabgate is inclusive, that people are put first in the delivery of new infrastructure, better connecting them to jobs and training while making sure arts and culture continue to thrive.

To do this, Leeds City Council want to work with those with an interest in the area over the summer to hear the thoughts and ideas of those who really know and love the area.

Key topics that will be covered during the creation of the framework include delivering improved connections to Lincoln Green and Burmantofts, the local response to the climate emergency and the provision of new public spaces and walking and cycling routes that will help make Mabgate a more attractive and accessible place for people of all ages.

We want to hear from those who live in and around Mabgate, or who have an interest in the area. So please get involved through the links below to share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions with us.

Paper copies of the survey are also available at Burmantofts Community Hub (Rigton Lawn), Merrion House Hub (Merrion Way), Kirkgate Community Hub & Library (Unit 280-282, Leeds Kirkgate Indoor Market), One Community Centre (Cromwell Street in Lincoln Green) and Patrick Studios (St Mary’s Lane in Mabgate).

    The feedback will be part of the development of the Mabgate regeneration framework.  The framework will aim to ensure that the growth happening there is inclusive, putting people first in the delivery of new infrastructure and better connecting them to jobs, training and learning. Another important consideration will be ensuring that arts and culture continue to thrive as new investment finds its way to the area.
