Greg Mulholland MP calls meeting to tackle noise nuisance in LS6

July 17, 2014 2:43 PM

Leeds North West MP, Greg Mulholland, has called a meeting with Leeds City Council, West Yorkshire Police, the three Leeds Universities and local Councillors in order to seek a solution to the noise nuisance issues experienced by residents in Headingley. The meeting will take place on Friday 18 July.

For many years local residents and students in the LS6 area have experienced high levels of noise nuisance disturbances from a small number of individuals. The meeting will explore how powers under existing legislation available to Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Police have been insufficient in tackling the problem to date.

The meeting called by Mr Mulholland will bring together all of those involved in order to try and create a united policy to ensure that there are short, medium and long term solutions in place to improve the level of community cohesion in the area.

Commenting, Greg Mulholland, said,

"This situation has been going on for far too long without any effective solution being found. Both Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Police have powers at their disposal to tackle these issues and it is important that they use these properly."

"Residents have been told for years that authorities are doing all that they can, yet the assistance they have received has been limited at best. The existing system clearly does not work and it is now time for all of us to come together and find a long term, workable solution for the people of Headingley."
