Caird Peckfield Ltd operates the Peckfield Landfill Site – a fully
permitted landfill disposal facility based to the east of Leeds.
Caird Peckfield is keen to work closely with village residents to identify
schemes within the village which could be eligible for LCF funding and
help set up project teams to deliver these.
Examples of schemes that may be eligible include refurbishing village
halls, new parks and sports facilities for children, village environmental
schemes, village “in bloom” schemes, etc.

The project aims to improve access at Ledston Luck nature reserve, a former colliery stack, to enable more people to appreciate and enjoy the wildlife haven. The grassland will be managed through conservation grazing to ensure long term sustainability of habitat quality and maintain the reserve as a local asset. A 1.9km signed route around the reserve will be created, 9 kissing gates, 2 footbridges and a set of access steps will be installed.
The aim of the project is to install an engineered in-situ concrete wheeled sports facility with drainage and access footpath to connect the skate park to the existing footpaths around the Stonegates Open Space. It will transform the open space providing an improved environment for sport, play and other recreation for local children and youth encouraging greater physical activity by providing an exciting alternative pastime.
The project aims to convert the existing stage area to include a ground floor meeting room with disabled access, two storage rooms and a first floor community lounge area. The lounge area, which will include a small kitchen, will provide a new and comfortable venue for local groups and enable additional activities to take place.
Oakwood Clock (Grade ll listed) is a four-sided working clock housed in a decorative ironwork tower some 15 metres tall. The 110 year old clock is currently being restored and made safe and secure for the future. The project is to re-pave and landscape the area around the clock transforming it into a community hub, for meetings and events.
