The West Yorkshire Combined Authority has set out a CLEAR vision for the future of transport and how we want to get there. We want to hear your thoughts on this vision, in our Connectivity Infrastructure Plan public engagement.
This is about more than getting people from A to B. It’s about getting all of us?– our people, our communities, our businesses –?to where we want to be as a region and how better transport can help us do that. And it’s about getting there in the best way possible. Whether you travel for work and want to discover brilliant new opportunities, or seek to enjoy more of our beautiful region, or to meet up with loved ones. We want our transport system to bring easy connectivity through an integrated network including walking and cycling, bus, mass transit and rail.
We would love to hear your thoughts on our Connectivity Infrastructure Plan via our short survey and map at: www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/connectivity This engagement is open for feedback until 11th April 2021.
Please feel free to pass this on to your networks.

The NHS has teamed up with Action Fraud and the National Crime Agency in issuing joint advice around the vaccine and that it is only available for free through the NHS. They will NEVER ask for payment.
The warning comes amid a number of reports of criminals attempting, and in some cases succeeding, to steal cash or personal details from people keen to get the vaccine.
In one extreme case, a man in London knocked on the door of a 92-year-old woman and administered her with a fake vaccine before taking a £160 payment which he told her would be reimbursed by the NHS. The City of London Police are currently investigating the incident.
In other cases, people are reporting suspicious text messages with a link to a booking site which mimics an NHS page, but asks for personal details including bank account numbers.
Con artists have also been known to use telephone calls to extract payments or bank details which can then be sold to organised criminal gangs or used to order and pay for goods online.
The NHS will never ask you for any payment details, PIN numbers, they will never arrive unannounced to administer a vaccine and will never ask you to forward any personal documents such as bills, wage slips etc.
If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to the number 7726 which is free of charge.
If you believe you are the victim of a fraud, please report this to Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk
The decennial census is almost upon us.
Households across Leeds and its surrounding towns and villages, will soon be asked to take part in the nationwide survey of housing and the population. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
Information from the digital-first census will help decide how services are planned and funded in your local area. This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, housing or new bus routes.
Households will receive a letter with a unique access code in the post, allowing them to complete their questionnaire online. Paper questionnaires will be available on request. Census day is March 21.

Leeds bin collections update from Leeds City Council
We still have about 110,000 bins across Leeds to collect that were missed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday due to the snow and ice conditions.
Crews will be working an extra day today (Sunday) to do all they can to catch up and empty as many of those 110,000 as possible.
Thank you to Veolia and HW Martin’s for opening their facilities today for us to take the black bin and green bin waste to.
If your street was missed on one of those days, please leave your bin out and we will try our best to get it emptied.
If we don’t manage to get to you today we will keep trying until Wednesday. But if your bin hasn’t been emptied by then, please take it back in until your next scheduled collection day for that colour bin.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support for the crews in these difficult times ?????
