1948 ... Some tenants on the Belle Isle Estate feel like they are been ignored and neglected because of the lack of amenities and services.
There are long stretches of road which are in darkness as there are no street lamps, some long roads there are only 4 street lamps.
There is only one playing field which residents can not use as it's private.
The school is only partly built with only the nursery in use. Nothing has been done with the school for quite some time - according to some of the tenants.
The older children on the estate have to go to schools in Hunslet. The under 7s go to the local church, which uses it's crypt as a temporary school.
Women of the estate would like a local shopping centre, as they have to go to Hunslet to do most of their shopping.
It was promised by the Education Committee, that work would begin the following week on completing the school.. They also said that they could be plans for another primary school and a secondary school.
