Application Form and details were in April Outlook.  Applications closed 8th April.
This is organised by volunteers, independently of Outlook  and of the Parish Council, see Clifford Community Fund.

The magazine, published at the turn of each month, is run by a voluntary committee and delivered free to every home in the parish by a team of volunteer distributors. It carries news of village events, articles by residents, advertisements for local businesses, public notices, etc. and 'articles for sale' (£1 per item). It is financed entirely by advertising.  All material must be received by noon on the 10th of the month (including Saturday and Sunday) prior to the issue in which it is to appear.

20mph Speed Limit Proposals 

Leeds City Council’s Executive Board approved a proposal in March 2018 to provide 20mph speed limits on residential streets across the city wherever appropriate. The aim is to create safer streets across the city, particularly for children, through reduced speed limits.

These 20mph limits cover as many residential streets as possible but do not include those roads with a higher function for the movement of vehicles. The proposals do not include traffic calming and will seek to reduce vehicle speeds by signing alone.

The proposals for Clifford are included in this pdf, proposals for Wetherby Ward.  There is a long list of street names, and there are maps further down. Also there are detais of how to respond to the Consultation.  Eventually these details should be published by Leeds City Council, probably on their own website.

 

.

Parish Council elections will take place on 2nd May 2019, all the details are here, including the timetable.
Clifford has nine Parish Councillor positions so there would be a poll if more than nine validated nominations were received.  However only six valid nominations were received so this is an 'Uncontested Election' and there will not be a poll.

Details are on Leeds City Council's web site here, listed under "Uncontested town and parish councils", and the list for Clilfford Parish Council is also here.

Information on being a Parish Councillor is available here.

The proposed development on the site of St Vincents School and Borlocco House involves 78 dwellings, nearly all gaining access from Church Street in Boston Spa.  The plans are here and are open for Comment until 15th March 2019.
