£411,000 has been made available citywide to fill holes in residential roads over the next year and the councillors want local residents to help them prioritise the streets with the worst damage.

Cllr Ryk Downes (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon) said: "The roads have been getting worse and worse over the last few years and this money offers the chance to put some of it right. Any residents can contact me on ryk.downes@leeds.gov.uk if they have a site in mind."

Cllr Sandy Lay (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon) said: "Potholes cause considerable inconvenience and financial cost to drivers, they make cycling more difficult than it already is and create significant difficulties for wheelchair users, buggies and pedestrians crossing roads, some of which sustain upper and lower limb injuries."

Cllr Colin Campbell (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon) said: "This money is not for main roads but to help make the streets better where people live. We're giving residents the chance to have their say on the worst affected roads so that we can let the highways department know, and hopefully see some of this money come Otley and Yeadon's way."
