    Leeds North West MP, Greg Mulholland, has expressed his concern and disappointment at the decision to approve plans to build 100 homes on fields east of Otley Road in Adel, around 100 yards from the Grade I-listed St John the Baptist Church.

    At the Leeds City Council South and West Plans Panel meeting today, the application was approved by 7 votes to 3.

    Mr Mulholland had objected to the original proposals to build houses on the green fields in April 2014, which were rejected. The MP had also objected to the most recent application, and had been urging local residents to also express their concerns about the application, and the impact the development would have on local infrastructure, as well as the setting of the Grade 1 listed 12th Century Adel Parish Church of St John the Baptist, which is one of the best examples of Norman architecture in Britain.

    I look forward to standing in Leeds North West for the fourth consecutive time and will be asking local people to put their trust in me once again, to carry on being a strong voice for our area, to campaign for positive change and to hold this divisive Government to account.

    After months of telling the British people there would be no snap election, Theresa May has now done a complete U-turn and has announced she wants to have one! Having told people she wanted stability and wanted to unite the country, she is instead acting cynically in the interests of the Conservative Party, not the country. Having said at least seven times that she wouldn't seek a snap election, people will now from on find it hard to trust anything Theresa May says.

    Leeds City Council are trying to cover up flaws in a controversial plan to build a rail station at Leeds Bradford Airport, despite local MP Greg Mulholland exposing the disarray the plans are in. The Council's plans for the proposed Parkway Rail Station have been shown to lack basic elements such as a study on how traffic access will be managed and the size and shape of the proposed car park.

    Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland MP spoke in a Westminster Hall debate on the Breathing Space scheme and thanked all of the volunteers who help to run the scheme and help families in debt. If fully implemented, the Breathing Space scheme would see people who seek advice for debt problems given a period of six months to a year in which interest and charges are frozen and enforcement action halted. The scheme is backed by the Step Change debt charity and also the Children's Society who produced a report on the effects that being in an indebted family can have on a child's mental health.

    Leeds North West MP, Greg Mulholland, has written to Leeds City Council to object to proposals for a 70 home development, in the field behind 33 to 40 Church Close, in Pool in Wharfedale.

    The application for the site was recently submitted by Taylor Wimpey, but Mr Mulholland has objected to the proposals over concerns about the impact on the surrounding roads, in addition to the impact on the village. Mr Mulholland has raised particular concerns about access to the site, from Pool Road, stating that traffic at the junction of Pool Road and the A658 is already a huge problem for local residents.

  • Greg with John and Andrea
    Article: Apr 6, 2017

    Greg Mulholland MP has announced his backing of local charity Elliot's Footprint's mission to help families who have been affected by the death of a child, whilst campaigning for improved bereavement support.

    Elliot's Footprint was set up by Andrea and John Kerslake in 2014 following the sudden and unexpected death of their son Elliot, aged just two and a half years old. The Kerslakes were left alone, like many Yorkshire families, to come to terms with their devastating loss and try to raise their remaining two children without any appropriate professional support or guidance, an experience which intensified their grief and led them to vow to support others in the same situation. The charity currently supports families by providing help and guidance on issues, including bereavement services and information that will guide them through the immediate aftermath.
