The Farnley & Wortley and Headingley parties continue to exist and retain their autonomy, but the new city wide party will act as a membership branch for those members without a local ward party and help new local ward parties form should they wish.
The Inaugural Meeting saw the election of the new Officers, some final amendments to the constitution, and the start of the process towards setting up a bank account. The new party is now able to concentrate on the coming elections and campaigning. The next meeting will take place after the Local Elections.
