  • West Yorkshire Combined Authority buy FirstBus and Arriva
    The West Yorkshire Combined Authority have agreed to proceed with investigating the options available to them in the sale of FirstBus. They made reference to the petition in their decision meeting and accepted the initial petition signatures. Future decisions will be required by the Combined Authority on this so further public action may be needed once the options open to them become clearer.

  • 20mph zone for Cromer Road School
    03/10/19 We did it!! Finally!! The 20mph limit was approved at the Council Meeting of the 3rd October Thank you to the 700 local residents who signed the petition and supported the campaign, to the school, the staff, parents & carers & the local shops & of course to the local Labour Party members for their support. We don’t know the timescales for implementation, as the new rules about public questions are really restrictive, but it will go out for statutory consultation initially. The scheme includes an “unsuitable for heavy goods vehicles” sign at the start of Cromer Road, and a review & reset of the current Vehicle Activated Sign (which is pretty pointless where it is currently - set to go off when someone exceeds 30mph, sited within a short distance of the start of the road). CCTV to enforce the school zig zags and the one way system have not yet been approved, but council officers have said they will come back with a proposal at a later meeting. WELL DONE EVERYONE!!! This isn’t the end of the road though. We'll need to keep following up with them to make sure they stick to their promises, which I fully intend to! Thank you! Philippa Whitecross

  • Back Seni’s Law
    UPDATE 06/07/18 - We won! MPs approve 'Seni's law' to restrict use of force against mental health patients! MPs have voted in favour of a new law to restrict the use of force against patients in mental health units, despite fears the bill might be blocked. The changes would force NHS trusts to increase transparency about the restraint of patients, including making police officers wear body cameras when dealing with vulnerable people The Commons burst into applause when the private member's bill, introduced by Labour's Steve Reed, passed its third reading. The reforms are known as "Seni's law" in memory of Olaseni Lewis, who died in September 2010 after being restrained by 11 police officers at Bethlem Royal Hospital in south-east London.

  • Scrap the public sector pay cap
    21/03/18 Downing Street said officials who decide pay across the public sector had been told they no longer had to limit recommendations to 1% rises. A No 10 source said: “The independent pay review bodies will make their recommendations in the normal way. We have said as a Government that the arbitrary 1% pay cap is no longer in place.” https://home.38degrees.org.uk/2018/03/26/nhs-pay-cap-victory/ https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/theresa-urged-give-public-sector-12227879

  • Danger to sea-life from oil spills
    04/12/18 We Won! Controversial plans to transfer millions of tonnes of crude oil between tankers at the mouth of the Cromarty Firth – allegedly threatening dolphins and other marine life – have been scrapped. The constituency MSP for the Black Isle praised the resilience of the Cromarty community after years of campaigning resulted in a neighbouring port authority abandoning plans for at-sea ship to ship oil transfers in the Moray Firth. Despite being a coastal village with a population of just 700, well over 100,000 people signed an online petition organised by the Cromarty Rising campaigners concerned about the environmental risks if an oil spill were to occur. The Cromarty and Moray Firths are home to bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoises, mink whales as well as other marine and bird life. https://www.energyvoice.com/oilandgas/north-sea/187527/cromarty-firth-scrubs-out-oil-transfer-plans/
