Kallum Taylor

Kallum Taylor, a 27-year-old Holgate resident who works for a local housing association has been chosen to be Labour's candidate at the Holgate by-election.

From 2012 to 2014, Kallum was the President of York University Students' Union (YUSU), standing up for staff and students on local and national issues and securing increased funding for campus services.

The by-election, caused by the retirement of former Labour Lord Mayor Sonja Crisp, will be held on Thursday 15 February.

Kallum was chosen as Labour's candidate from a shortlist of five. "Holgate has got some big challenges as has York. The York Central Development, which lies within the ward, has to provide solutions that are right for the city and not be just a chance for someone to make a quick buck.

"There’s so much going wrong in this country at the moment and so I feel it is necessary to try and do something for my community.

I’m going to be speaking with as many local people as possible about how we can improve our neighbourhood together. Please get in touch if you want to find out more, raise an issue, or get involved with the campaign."

Team Holgate

Labour's campaign for the Holgate by-election got off to a flying start this week. Dozens of local activists have been taking Labour's message of hope to people in Holgate, and have been responding to their concerns about local issues. We look forward to being able to speak with many more people over the coming weeks.

Sonja Crisp, who served for 11 years on the Council, announced her retirement on Friday 5 January. She said: “I have been a part of a very productive and dedicated team of three Labour Councillors for Holgate Ward and am proud of the things we have been able to achieve for local residents.

Voters in Holgate will go to the polls to choose an new councillor on Thursday 15 February. Holgate Labour Party members will be choosing the candidate to contest the vacancy on the evening on Friday 12 January.

Clifton Ward Councillors are encouraging the public to have their say on relocating the services to a Londis shop on Haxby Road.  The move would take the branch 800 metres away from its previous location from north of York hospital to the east of the main hospital site.

A long awaited replacement for Crichton Avenue branch post office could be open as early as March, as Post Office consults on providing services from a new location.

Clifton Councillor Margaret Wells said:
“The consultation is already underway and we want the public to get in touch with the Post Office to offer their views. Although the proposal still means Clifton ward will have no post office, the new branch on Haxby Road would be closer for many residents than the branch at Eastholme Drive. The consultation runs until 22nd January and we would like as many people as possible to reply.

“Comments can be emailed to: comments@postoffice.co.uk, citing the reference number for the new branch of 27934999. It’s important Post Office hears how this new location and planned counter services will work for Clifton residents”.

Fellow Ward Councillor Danny Myers added:
“We remain conscious of the fact that Clifton still has no branch post office and continue to explore possibilities within the ward to ensure post office services are within reasonable reach for all residents of Clifton”.
