Councillors Jools, Emma, and Izaak

Weetwood Labour Councillors - here to help!

Emma, Izaak, and Jools - your local councillors

We all live in the ward and will do our very best to make this an even better place to live.

 

Our job is to help you with local issues and make sure the needs of people in Weetwood are represented on the council. We spend most of our time finding solutions to long running issues like road safety, the cost of living, and anti-social behaviour.

Get involved

Labour across Leeds

Despite £2.5billion cut from our budget since 2010, here are some of the things our Labour run city council is able to achieve for the whole of Leeds, thanks to your support.

Homes being built

Housing for all

We have a guarantee of accommodation so no one has to sleep rough. Leeds is in the top 10% of the country for new council homes built.

Installing Solar Panels

Green investment

Since 2019 we've reduced our carbon emissions 40% and aim for net zero by 2030. We're putting solar panels and insulation in public buildings and have new rules so developers do the same.

children learning

Putting children first

We've prioritised children in our budget, keeping all children's centres open. The only city to get two Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ ratings in a row for our Children's Services.

Better transport options

Working with the Mayor we have a £2 bus fare cap which has led to more passengers, more pedestrian crossings, safer cycle lanes, and now an electric bike hire scheme for the area.

Pay day on calendar

Real Living Wage

We pay the Real Living Wage, and use our influence to persuade major local employers to do the same including for carers.

Bulky waste

Clean neighbourhoods

We've made bulky waste collections free to reduce fly tipping, and set up a new serious environmental crime team to prosecute those who do litter and fly tip.

Who we are

Thanks to you voting Labour our area has, for the first time ever, three councillors who all live in the ward. We also have a hard working local MP in Alex Sobel. Here's a bit more about us.
