We are an organisation, made up of concerned local residents and small businesses, formed with the aim of promoting and developing a sustainable community in Headingley.
The HDT Board meets on the third Tuesday of each month. If you have something to raise please contact the Secretary.
We think that a community-owned development trust can help us to take back some control over our environment and gives us exciting new possibilities for creating a thriving community.
The trust has a membership to whom the directors are accountable. Members may be individuals, groups or businesses, but each member gets only one vote, however much they invest.
The trust is organised and promoted by a Board of Directors, drawn from the membership. The Board was initially a self-appointed group, but is now elected annually at the AGM after one year of operation. Want to know more? Read on? What are we aiming to do?
We wish to make a difference in Headingley by acquiring assets (buildings and land) and using them for the good of the community.
Such assets may be being disposed of by the City Council, the Universities or private owners.
We aim to run some enterprises to produce an income which will be used to help promote the businesses and services that a balanced community needs.
