Leeds Girls High School Meeting


Earlier this week there was a public meeting about the future of the Leeds Girls High School site.

The site has now been empty for a couple of years and the community is becoming (rightly) fed up with the inaction of the school and its constant desire to shaft the community and build houses on the playing fields.

There is a good account of the meeting on Bill McKinnon's website, one of the few posts on his website that I've agreed with! Both Greg Mulholland MP and Cllr Martin Hamilton (Lib Dem, Headingley) attended the meeting with Martin chairing part of it. Greg spoke during the meeting and managed to secure a meeting between the High School and the local Leeds Girls High School Action Group (LGHSAG). This should be a step forward in protecting the playing fields and getting the best result for the community.

Interestingly although the Labour Leeds North West Parliamentary candidate and Labour's ccouncil candidate for Headingley were present, neither of them decided to speak.
