    Garages on Queensway, off Haigh Road have been demolished and are to be grassed over for residents to enjoy thanks to Rothwell Lib Dem Councillor Stewart Golton.

    After years as a local eyesore, demolition has started and work should be finished on the new green area by the summer.

    Cllr Stewart Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell) commented: "The garages have remained largely unused for some time now and the area has turned increasingly derelict, becoming a magnet for graffiti and fly-tipping.

    A year after the new franchise was announced, Cllr Stewart Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell), met with Northern Rail to find out the scale and timetable for the promised improvements to the line.

    The residents of John O'Gaunts are being encouraged to get their estate's needs formally recognised in writing, by completing the Rothwell Neighbourhood Forum's residents' survey.

    Cllr Stewart Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell) said: "The community on John O'Gaunts have a history of being let down by the council when it comes to estate improvements. Too often an investment programme will start, only to be cut short halfway through leaving half the community short-changed.

    Following residents' requests for a shrub bed to be removed on High Ridge Park, Councillor Stewart Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell) has welcomed news that the proposal has been approved.

    Local Lib Dem councillor Stewart Golton (Lib Dem, Rothwell) is celebrating the long awaited delivery of a footbridge over the Aire at Skelton Lake near Woodlesford.

    The bridge was promised a decade ago but plans were mired when squabbles with the old Coal Authority surfaced over money.

    A few years ago, Sustrans were given the task of constructing the bridge with an accessible path, linking the lake to Rothwell Country Park and the Wykebeck Valley Way. The bridge has now been completed, with only a final section of the path to be finished for it to open to the public.
