Photo_2696Two senior West Yorkshire councillors charged with improving connectivity spoke to business in Bradford recently.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority representatives Peter Box and James Lewis addressed Bradford Property Forum at an event sponsored by Bradford College.  Devolution and transport improvements across West Yorkshire were the twin themes.  Cllr Box said that greater partnership working and a move away from parochialism was helping businesses and other communities.  Senior Bradford councillor, Val Slater, confirmed that, for devolution to work in West Yorkshire, the focus should be on transport and housing.
