Leeds city centre now has three brand new pitches. The old, tired and redundant pitches have been replaced. This has been made possible through close inter agency work with Leeds city council. Potential sites were reviewed and agreed through close cohesion.
The importance of the vendors having direct involvement in the development of the pitches was also crucial to the pitch development. A notice board was created with all the details of the new potential pitches. The vendors then had to vote for the three pitches that they wanted the most.
This system gave the vendors a say in their own futures and it communicated to them that a ‘Them and Us’, policy does not exist. It also reinforced the bonds between staff and vendors who took to the project with great enthusiasm. In Leeds we want it to be clear, through action as well as words, that vendors are valued and their voices are heard by staff.
