    Cllr Stewart Golton has condemned the revised route plan for HS2 as it still presents a bad deal for the residents of Oulton and Woodlesford.

    The government announced the new route today (Tuesday 15th November) as part of its official proposals for HS2 in Leeds.

    Under the new plan, trains would come further into Woodlesford, tunnel into a local park, under the town and emerge again by Rothwell Country Park. Earlier plans had routed the line along the canal over a viaduct.

    Cllr Sandy Lay (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon) has spoken of his disappointment that the promised community care wards have not yet materialised at Wharfedale Hospital.

    Just five months ago, campaigners for an intermediate care ward were celebrating after receiving news that the Leeds South & East Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) had agreed to open up a previously closed ward in Wharfedale Hospital.

    Cllr Colin Campbell (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon), has expressed his disappointment at the changes to the 967 bus timetable that have left residents in Otley with even fewer morning and evening services to the airport and Menston station.

    The 967 currently links the train station in Menston to Leeds Bradford International Airport via Otley and Pool, giving local residents flying on business or holiday, and those that worked in Leeds and the airport a guaranteed connection.

    Cllr Stewart Golton is hopeful that walking to Woodlesford station will soon be a safer experience after plans were drawn up to improve a dangerous junction.

    The junction at Aberford Road and Station Lane is at present a risky one for pedestrians as the road is wide and only one side of it has a pavement, making it hard to cross the road safely.

    Leeds Lib Dem group leader Stewart Golton has warned that communities stand to suffer after the government reaffirmed its commitment to cutting pharmacy budgets.

    The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee has warned that the government will be imposing a cut of 12% to the national pharmacies budget from December 1st this year. From April 2017 there will be an additional cut of 7%. This will deprive pharmacies of £113 million this year and a further £200 million from 2017/18 onwards.

    Rothwell councillor Stewart Golton is calling for Leeds City Council to take urgent action on an eyesore plot of land which has long been an issue for local residents.

    The site behind numbers 53-63 Leadwell Lane has become a magnet for fly tipping, anti-social behaviour and even reports of rough sleeping within garages sited on it.

    Cllr Stewart Golton has accused council bosses of neglecting Rothwell's roads after finding out that the town's budget for pothole repairs is the lowest in Leeds.

    Rothwell will receive just £5,000 from the pothole action fund, a government grant worth £472,000 to Leeds City Council in 2016/17. Every other ward in the Leeds City Council area has been awarded more.
