This is the second annual State of the City Report produced for Leeds which provides an overview of what’s happening in Leeds in 2012 and underpins the Vision for Leeds, the City Priority Plan and the Council Business Plan.
The report is for anyone who wants to know more about Leeds - as a member of the community, someone who works in Leeds, visits, learns, does business or invests in the city.
The report has been commissioned by the Leeds Initiative Board and written by Leeds City Council, the NHS in Leeds and the wider public sector partnership. It sets out a range of key facts about the city, the challenges it faces and the way in which the council, NHS and other public and third sector partners will be working together to secure the best possible outcomes for the people of Leeds.
The report describes the progress made across a range of key issues since last year and draws upon a number of case studies which exemplify the positive work, effective partnership working and innovation that is taking place across the city. The report provides links to more detailed information such as analysis and research and also provides links to the Leeds Observatory which is a web based tool for disseminating a wide range of data and information about the city and its communities.
The Leeds Initiative Board and other partnerships will use the report to assess their progress in delivering improved outcomes for the people of Leeds.
The full report and executive summary can be assessed via the external links area on the right hand side.
A special meeting of the Council will take place on Wednesday 28 November at 1.00pm at Leeds Civic Hall to debate the report.
