That the council have cancelled the new years eve celebrations as they need to save money - they cost 33k.

Yet they are building a new entrance to the train station which is costing 15million pounds?

Madness!!!

< from leeds - not heard it tbh - and i'm working NYE so it won't matter to me... didn't know about the train station either and i only live down the bottom of whitehall road.... ( near dunelm mills for those that know the area )

Ridiculous isn't it, Bonfire night and Christmas will probably be cancelled next year !!

How on earth can it cost £15m to build a new entrance. I could make them a new one for a fraction of the price.

Do you not think it's just ridiculous? They keep scrapping the tram thing etc etc.

Why does the station even need a new entrance?

Leeds needs an arena!!! That's for sure!!

they could build something half decent in the area where the swimming pool used to be - granted not a big arena but something could go there..

im from warrington and it appears all firework displays are cancelled to save money and bonfires banned...so xmas lights will be next as im sure we need a new naff statue somewhere soon again!!

They're building the new shopping centre which is pointless.

There is a mass of space near where topps tiles used to be near the porche garage.

It could go there?!

Gypo's need that space tho!!!

Nothing surprises me about the council anymore. I'm still waiting for the ice rink and concert arena we were promised!!

That tram rubbish was the biggest cash cow for council members I've ever seen. It was an excuse for them to travel Europe 'assessing ' other countries efforts.

It's all .......... (insert expletive)

The Rick Astley statue is NOT POINTLESS

Yet they can afford 6 separate FREE bonfire night events.

I don't mind, I'm from Sheffield (but pay my council tax to Rotherham).

I will still be enjoying the Leeds Council Tax funded display though
