    Councillor Sandy Lay (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon) has called upon First Bus to improve reliability of the 33A service.

    The 33A, running from Otley to Leeds train station, connects residents in Horsforth, Rawdon, Yeadon and Guiseley and is a vital service for local residents.

    However, due to the length of the route, it also encounters many of the bottlenecks that are created on the road network in Leeds, meaning long waits for passengers at bus stops are common.

    Lib Dem councillors Sandy Lay, Ryk Downes and Colin Campbell have welcomed the news that locations have now been found for the two variable message signs they secured from Leeds City Council earlier this year.

    Residents and families are upset by the decision to close the council-run Manorfield Care Home.

    Having claimed in election leaflets a little over a year ago that the Labour council had 'saved' Manorfield, Labour recently announced that the home would be closed.

    Liberal Democrat councillors are disappointed at the news and extend their sympathies to the residents that will have to move to other private care homes.

    Museum volunteers and supporters were shocked to find that the City Council had plans to sell off Horsforth Museum including the old Housing Office and The Stables next door.

    The plans suggested moving the museum to the library basement and selling its current home at the bottom of Town Street, but town and local city councillors along with many residents managed to persuade the council to halt the sale.

    Speeding has been a controversial subject with residents complaining of dangerously high speeds and the council implying that speeds were not out of the ordinary.

    Councillor Golton asked for the details of speed tests undertaken in 2015 at the junction with Westfield Lane. The council used the figures to endorse their position that further action was not required as the results showed that average driving speeds were around the 30mph limit.
