Every 4 years there is an election of all the parish council.   Each ward ( Barwick & Scholes) has 6 councillors who are elected by residents.   Should 6 or less people stand in a ward then there is no vote and those 6 are elected un opposed.
So if you are not happy about the way the parish council is run or simply want to be part of the decision process about local affairs why not put yourself forward as a parish councillor?   For further details on the process contact the clerk to the parish council or electoral services at Leeds City Council.

Following an application to the Environment Fund for the Harewood ward we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a £350 grant from our ward councillors (Matthew Robinson, Sam Firth & Ryan Stephenson) . This will be used for the purchase of spring bulbs and wild flower seeds  for Scholes Lodge Field.

What is the Joint Strategic Assessment (JSA)?

The JSA provides a holistic and reliable source of data and analysis about key demographic, socio- economic and health trends in Leeds. It aims to present an up-to-date picture of the issues driving health and wellbeing in the city, providing deeper insights which help us to understand the interrelated nature of the challenges which affect people’s lives. The JSA does not attempt to set out the current policy response, rather, its primary purpose is to inform commissioners and policy makers about the future needs of the city to better enable effective strategic planning, priority setting and commissioning decisions – helping to make the most of the resources available, deliver the best possible outcomes for Leeds citizens in a joined-up way, and engage everyone to play their part.

Easy Street Burglary Campaign 2021

Easy Street signEasy Street is any street that criminals find inviting due to poor home security and maintenance.

Think about your own home. Is it inviting for all the wrong reasons?

Follow our check list to improve your home security :

  • Insecure doors and windows, it’s easy to forget to lock up when you’re in a rush 
  • Protect your valuables inside your home by keeping them out of sight 
  • Check your doors and windows meet minimum security standards of PAS 24 
  • You can grow your own security with defensive planting such as hardy bushes and shrubs 
  •  Internal lights and external dusk till dawn lighting can reduce the risk of being being burgled

 Scholes In Bloom have delivered envelopes asking for donations so as to be able to continue the fantastic work they do and for the purchase of plants for this coming year. 
Nearly £3,000 donated by Scholes Residents.

The sale of Leeds Festival tickets this year raised £22,500 for the villages.   The Barwick and Scholes Community Fund will announce which grant bids have been successful in January/February 2023.
