Stuart, Councillor Andrew Carter (Leader of the Conservative Group and Calverley and Farsley Ward) and Councillor Simon Seary (Pudsey Ward) have recently held a virtual meeting to discuss their joint ambition to improve the town of Pudsey.
Stuart, Councillor Carter and Councillor Seary will be working closely with residents to draw up plans to improve investment in Pudsey Town Centre, and make the town a more vibrant, exciting and attractive place for residents and businesses alike.
This ambition also seeks to investigate how they can work together as representatives of Pudsey to enhance some of the historical features of the town and improve the current transport layout.
As part of this, they plan to formulate a Committee that can explore all the funding options that may be available to facilitate this and the views and ideas of residents.
Stuart said: “Myself and my colleagues have long been championing Pudsey as the great town it is, but we do all strongly agree that more needs to be done to ensure its full potential is being realised. I am particularly keen to ensure the transport issues we face are addressed, and that we do all we can to attract more investment. Most importantly, we want to get the ideas on how this can be achieved from people who are living and working in Pudsey, and I look forward to formulating a Committee to do this.”
Councillor Carter said: “Pudsey is a fantastic town to live and work in, but we agree with many of our constituents that it is in desperate need of investment as an area has been neglected for too long. I am very pleased to work with my colleagues and our constituents to investigate how we can both overcome this neglect and attract investment, which will in turn support our businesses and shops as we recover from COVID-19. I look forward to making headway on this for our town and its residents.”
Councillor Seary said: “I look forward to seeing what more we can achieve together with our constituents to build on the fantastic community spirit in Pudsey, and to make it a more pleasurable experience to visit our town and support our thriving market. We are also hoping to bring a focal centre point in replacing Pudsey Bus Station and enhance our leisure and recreational facilities. I very much look forward to working with my colleagues and residents on this as I know many of our residents have great ideas on how we can improve our town.”
