    The future of an area of amenity greenspace in west Leeds has been secured by Leeds City Council.

    Following long and detailed negotiations, the council has acquired football pitches and associated recreational land at Woodhall Playing Fields on Woodhall Lane in Pudsey from the University of Bradford.

    The future of football pitch provision has also been secured and, as the site adjoins Woodhall Lake Leeds Nature Area which is already managed by the council, the deal creates a significant sport and outdoor recreation opportunity for use by the local community.

    The council says it is also currently negotiating further woodland and greenspace acquisitions in the vicinity.
