Save the decking areas located outside of Grön Kafe and Hessian

Unfortunately, due to council restrictions Grön Kafe and Hessian have been ordered to remove the raised decking areas as they claim they have ‘failed to enhance the local context and has significantly harmed the visual amenity, character and appearance of this conservation area’.

We believe the raised seating area only serves to help elevate the local area in appearance, as well as supporting business and footfall.

In recent years we have seen similar successful examples in the development of outside areas in other Leeds suburbs such as Chapel Allerton and Meanwood. They enhance the customer experience, keep people local and bring in more business from the surrounding areas, which in turn supports more local businesses and helps promote a thriving community.

We are launching this petition now as we would like to gain your support in this current dispute.
