Guiseley residents urged to back campaign for town council
8:00am Wednesday 8th January 2014 in News
Guiseley residents are being asked to support a campaign to create the area's own town council.
Leaflets are being delivered to households inviting people to sign an online petition in favour of the move. Efforts to establish a town council, in a bid to boost local democracy, began years ago.
Now campaigners – boosted by a £1,000 grant from the New Local Councils Programme – are hoping to regain momentum and collect 1,000 signatures within a few weeks.
The leaflet directs residents to ipetitions.com/petition/guiseley-town-council.
