Methley Churchside conservation area appraisal and management plan was adopted by Leeds City Council in October, 2008. The document looks briefly at the history of the village and defines what contributes to its special character and sense of place. It also identifies opportunities for future enhancement and at the same time encourages its ongoing protection.
A draft version of the appraisal went through a public consultation process and was amended in light of comments received. The final document can be viewed on the Leeds.gov website look under countryside conservation – Methley, Churchside
