Safe overnight stops for Motorhomes

We travel all over this country watching and writing about pantomimes usually over Christmas. It is a real challenge to park and find places to stay overnight, I contact councils in the towns or cities we are visiting and they have been most helpful. We have now joined CAMpRA (Campaign for Real Aires UK) Please […]

Improve transport into Leeds

Morley is thriving and growing more and more young people are moving here year upon year. The train into Leeds has too few carriages and isn’t often enough to accommodate commuters at peak times, the bus is ridiculous, the transport links need improvement!

Better road & traffic solutions

The roadways around Morley are awful in some areas. There should be more double yellow lines on busy roads as currently cars double park everywhere and getting down one street takes 5 minutes even without a jam, often double parking occurres on blind corners so cars end up having to revserse to let each other […]

Harwill football pitch

The Harwill football pitch always has many cars parked outside it blocking the road and restricting access into the estate. Could a small portion of the field be made into a small parking area, not a massive job in terms of time to complete . Or potentially reduce the pavement width so cars can pass […]

Fordable small business units

Small businesses are the lifeblood of towns and we need to encourage more small businesses into the area. One hurdle for small businesses and start-ups as finding affordable premises. These could be built to make Morley a small business and start up hub. This would bring employment and prosperity to the town at an affordable […]

A new large health centre

Morley has seen rapid growth over the last few years with lots of new housing developments, this has caused issues with infrastructure, such as health centres being oversubscribed. A new large health centre with minor casualty unit would be helpful.

Statues

How about a statue of Eric Morecambe? I heard his mum had a friend who once thought she knew someone from the top of Churwell Hill but it turns out she didn’t

Improved Access to Rail Station

Lifts/ ramps for the disabled/those with luggage/pushchairs/wheelchairs at Morley railway station – improved parking (park and ride to station or bus service?) to connect to town centre…improved security CCTVs and lighting plus a few trees and shrubs would not go amiss to brighten up the area for commuters! It’s pretty grim down there at the […]

Uodate the main street

Invest in tidying up the shops frontages maybe have them all matching etc.. Same font on signs giving it a classic feel. Maybe more promotion on the new bars as there’s a lot of cool bars now opening and this will bring more people to stay out in Morley on a night out instead of […]

Increased travel links

Morley train station has only 2 trains an hour, and this is assuming the companies send enough carriages to let us all on. This means commuters are left every morning with no other option than to get a taxi. Bus fares are more expensive than trains and take at least 20 minutes longer. If we […]

Improve Rundown Areas

Re-generate the rundown and closed shops e.g. Morley bottoms force landlords to improve their unkempt properties. A area and its folk will all be lifted when these areas are more attractive and helps build a pride in their town.

Dedicated Cycle Highway to Leeds

Please build a dedicated cycle highway from Morley into Leeds. This will reduce traffic congestion by giving people a safe alternative to commuting by car and will improve air quality. Ideally the route would go toward Elland Road, and then use then join the proposed Holbeck Viaduct cycle/footpath (https://www.holbeckviaduct.org.uk) to continue the route into Leeds […]

Investment in public transport

Invest more money into the public transport options and walking routes to main public transport hubs. Trains from Morley to Leeds are quick but very overcrowded and often cancelled. The walking routes to the train station could be improved to encourage more people to walk to and use the train. Bus services are good but […]

Morley train station

At the moment, there is only ramp access to one platform at Morley train station. It is easy to go to Leeds city centre on the train if you are a wheelchair user or push a pram, however there is no access on the other side of Morley train station. This means that wheelchair users, […]

Create a Morley Archive / Museum

Recent events with the auction, and loss of, many historical artefacts collected by a local historian highlighted that there is a large amount of interest in Morley’s rich history. Sadly some of this is now in private collections but for that saved and for future items I feel Morley needs a small museum to celebrate […]

Park improvements

Morley has a lot of parks nestled between housing as well as couple of “main” parks such as Dartmouth and Scatcherd. Nice as these are they aren’t the kind of places that make someone from outside of the area want to visit and boost trade in the town. I propose investing a small amount of […]

Increase funding to include family groups, young people’s groups (we have a high number of children experiencing mental distress). Clothes exchange, community food nights. Let’s restore a real meaning of community […]

Help for New Retailers

Morley is inundated with charity shops.this is because they can claim back a % of the rent. Locals have said they simply cannot afford the rent charged. If rents could be subsidised for the first 2 years this will help start up businesses & will hopefully encourage independent retailers to the town.
