    Councillor Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell) has accused the council of dishonesty in its handling of nuisance parking on Wood Lane in Rothwell.

    The council told local ward members that a traffic regulation order (TRO) on the A61 would only be implemented alongside more parking available on site in Leeds Valley office park. This was to avoid the chaos that has occurred in the past when cars displaced from parking on the A61 filled Wood Lane to bursting.

    Cllr Sandy Lay (Lib Dem, Otley & Yeadon) said:"Everyone knows someone that was lost in the First World War, and the Battle of the Somme left many families missing their sons, husbands and fathers.

Group leader Cllr Stewart Golton (Rothwell) says leader Judith Blake risks accusations of hypocrisy on her compassionate city pledges.

  • Christine and Brett outside their home pointing to where the large 8 x 4 foot bill board was taken from early this morning ()
    Article: Jun 23, 2016
    P rominent north Leeds Remain supporters Christine and Richard Brett woke up this morning to discover their giant 8 x 4 foot "Vote Remain" bill board had been removed from their front garden during the night. The couple are leading Leeds Liberal Democrats.

    "If this is what Leave supporters are doing, it shows how empty is their argument for leaving the European Union," says Christine Brett. "They probably had to come on to our property to take it. I expect it was at least a couple of people, because the bill board was huge!"

    "We're very angry," adds Richard Brett. "We're just going to get another sign and campaign even harder today for a massive Remain majority."
