Councillor Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member for development and the economy said:
“Today’s announcement of £14.4m funding for Leeds and Bradford is excellent news, and the fact that we have been allocated the top amount of funding that we asked for shows an enormous amount of confidence in the proposals we put forward.
