Infrastructure

There are so many new properties being built all around the town and yet there has been no investment in improving the infrastructure to cope with so many new people. No new doctors, schools, roads etc. The few green spaces that are left need to be looked after better, by residents also to enable them […]

Rejuvenate queens park

For too long queens park as been left to rack and ruin. The park looks a disgrace. There is no play equipment for children and the benches, paths and plants/flowers are in disrepair or non existent. The park is depressing. Spend some money to bring it up to a standard where people will want to […]

Invest this money into castleford as soon as possible to ensure the elderly and vulnerable have everything they need delivered to their doorsteps for free. Then restock the shops with essentials, how can major toilet roll manufacturers say we have plenty for the country when our entire town has sold out.

Cycle ways vs flooding issues

cycle ways are good, would love Castleford to have one…. But, we need proper flood defences first. Sort out the necessities before giving us ‘nice to haves’. We have many problems in Castleford that need attending to, not least of which is the litter and the general air of neglect. Flowers, waste bins and a […]

Sexual Health Clinics

A Sexual Health Clinic in Castleford with free parking. Easily accessible. Without being referred by a doctor. We have a mental health clinic but not sexual. Teen pregnancy is very high in this area. Sexual Education is almost none existent, coming from someone who left school not too long ago. The commute, the lack of […]

Cycle Highway from Castleford to Leeds

A dedicated cycle highway running alongside the canal between Castleford and Leeds would be allow people to commute by bike to Leeds which would get bicycle users off the road network and reduce traffic congestion by getting more people to cycle rather than drive (with resulting benefits to air quality). Parts of this route (e.g. […]

Flood Defences

I would like to see money invested in improving flood defences in Castleford. Following the recent storms, some roads were impassable due to the river bursting it’s banks. People in the community were taking to social media requesting information as to whether they could make their journeys. With climate change being a big issue, things […]

Build more warehouse units and make them cheaper for new starter businesses

To build more warehouse units/office units/workshop space and make them cheaper for new starter business and up and coming business rather than let agencies charger a ridiculous amount for tiny office or warehouse space. Will help push new businesses and encourage people to open businesses because at the moment the prices are too scary for […]

Mid Yorkshire Parkway

Reopen the through line at Castleford. Build a new station off the motorway junction to connect with rail services to Leeds-Sheffield and York-Wakefield-Huddersfield-Manchester as a hub linking rail across the region with M62, M1 and A1M. This could drive regeneration and combine motorway and rail in a complementary rather than either or manner. Trial a […]

Traffic chaos

Something to improve the chaos and madness that is the entrance to excape and junction 32 shopping centre. The traffic at weekends is totally gridlocked, and will only get worse if the new exion shopping mall and rugby ground goes ahead. One main entrance to this area is badly planned adding to the problem of […]

Families Hub

Whilst we are lucky to have a couple of children’s centres in town, they’re council run and obviously have to be impartial. A hub area, subsidised, would allow all of the small business selling children’s clothes & items, baby groups, antenatal classes, courses, sling libraries, nappy libraries and other family orientated space to operate without […]

Ferry Fryston Wasteland

Near Tieve Tara medical center in Ferry Fryston there’s a big wild area, it is notorious for people fly tipping, hunting, day drinking and drug dealing. It’s a disgusting wasteland knee deep in rubbish and waste. It would benefit our area if the land was levelled and recreated into a controlled giant garden with public […]

Queens Park improvements

At present it is a sight of vandalism and anti-social behaviour and not very inviting. Families are not using it to its potential and with the right plans and development this could be addressed. Local Schools could take advantage of the areas in the park if they were inviting, educational and safe. Policing or security […]

Railway lines

The line to York and Scarborough is opened again and both platforms in the station are used. A new bridge across the tracks will be needed to give access to the unused platform. Town centre needs to be regenerated- reduced business rates to encourage retailers to move into the town. Redevelopment of Castleford Tigers rugby […]

Safer walking access from Castleford to St Wilfrid’s High School, Featherstone.

Currently the path that leads up to St Wilfrid’s High School from Castleford (along b6421 Cutsyke Road from the Castleford Lane roundabout) breaks up in parts leaving pedestrians to have to walk on the road – particularly children. This part of the road also allows vehicles to travel at the national speed limit. There needs […]

Valley Gardens

Valley Gardens (off Lower Oxford Street) is a park in central Castleford. It last had investment in the 90s and now needs some TLC. Refurbishment of this area would bring much needed facilities to the area.
