‘Year full of missed chances for Calderdale'
1:00pm Friday 3rd January 2014 in News
Conservative councillors in Calderdale have dubbed 2013 the “year of missed opportunities” for the district.
Councillor Stephen Baines, Conservative group leader, said: “At the beginning of the year Labour controlled the Council in conjunction with the Liberal Democrats, but since May Calderdale has been controlled by a minority Labour cabinet.
“During that period we have experienced lost opportunities and local opinion ignored.”
He said these included a council tax increase of 1.99 per cent and an increase in car parking charges.
