Rubbish on the agenda for Community Committee

The agenda for the next meeting of the Inner South Community Committee, made up of the nine Councillors for our three wards: Beeston & Holbeck, Hunslet & Riverside and Middleton Park, has been published. The meeting, which is open to the public, is taking place, at the Hamara Healthy Living Centre, Tempest Road, Beeston, LS11 6RD on Wednesday 1 March 2023 starting at 2pm.

The meeting starts with an Open Forum, this is an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions or raise issues directly with their Councillors. At the last meeting in November Cottingley residents asked why their bin service was so poor. Senior officers will be attending this meeting to discuss the issue.
