The Leeds inner city areas of Chapeltown and Harehill, dogged by
bad publicity as among the most deprived in the country, have got their
own PR manager to show the communities in a positive light. Leeds Urban
Initiative, a Leeds City Council-led regeneration project, has brought
in ex-Leeds Carnival organiser Susan Pitter to promote the regeneration
programme and dispel the negative image of what has become a late-night
no-go area for taxis. Pitter will work alongside a cross-community
steering group which includes Sinclair Mason PR.
