Wakefield Survey

Yorkshire First is a political party that was set up by a member of the Labour Party who realised that Labour was taking Yorkshire for granted. Yorkshire First wants to build a fairer, stronger, more prosperous Yorkshire within a better United Kingdom.

Lucy Brown, the Yorkshire First Council Candidate for Wakefield North and Dan Cochran, the Yorkshire First Council Candidate for Wakefield South in the Thursday 5 May election to Wakefield Council, would like to hear about your ideas and views on how Wakefield could be improved.

Do you agree with Lucy and Dan that our schools and hospitals should be invested in to make sure they can support Wakefield's growing population?

    A: Improve the Wildcat Stadium and put an order to stop this from being taken over for development of housing.
    The roads are shocking time to sort the potholes. Where I live the road was resurfaced only a few years ago and it’s no better now.
