Leeds Council – not trying to cause a big sensation, talkin’ ’bout re-generation

The bizarre case of the local Chamber of Commerce’s involvement in the abortive setting up of a regeneration board for east Leeds is to be discussed at a full meeting of Leeds City Council this afternoon.

A motion being put to the Council calls on Council Chief Executive Tom Riordan to establish just what happened and recommend ways of preventing any recurrence.

Just as well, then, that Mr Riordan has just stepped down as a director of the local Leeds, York and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.

The murky affair – set against a backdrop of multi-million pound development projects in east Leeds – has aroused no interest in the local media.

Also up for debate is a call for the council’s ruling Labour Party to stand by its commitment to hold a referendum on the building of a waste incinerator at Cross Green.

The meeting begins in the Civic Hall at 1.45.
