The NGT Trolleybus Scheme: Public Enquiry Date Fixed

By • Mar 28th, 2014 • Category: Community

Tuesday 29th April marks the start of the public enquiry into what is now being referred to as the Leeds Trolley Vehicle System Order – the NGT Trolleybus Scheme.

Some local Residents’ Associations and Businesses have serious misgivings about the proposals and claim that the benefits of the NGT outweigh the damage that it does to the environment and streetscape.

Concerns were raised that the scheme will despoil a very attractive part of the city and that, following years of disruption and unnecessary expense (£250m, of which about £77m comes from Leeds), resulting in a public transport service that is no cheaper and no better – in some respects worse – than is presently available.
