I have received the information below from the Council’s Planning Department setting out how residents will be able to register objections or support for the various green, amber and red suggested site allocations. Can I also suggest that you try and get at least 10 of your friends or neighbours to take part in this consultation event as well as it is important to get as many residents as possible to express their views.
If you have any questions or queries please let me know and I will do my best to answer them or get an answer and come back to you.
Please note that Leeds City Council has published the Issues and Options for the Site Allocations Plan for public consultation. This will be an 8 week public consultation period starting on Monday 3rd June and finishing at 5pm on Monday 29th July.
What are we consulting you on?
The Site Allocations Plan is a key document in the Local Plan for Leeds in identifying specific allocations for development to 2028. It will cover the whole of Leeds district except for the area within the Aire Valley Area Action Plan which is a separate plan.
The Issues and Options stage of the Site Allocations Plan sets out early ideas for site allocations for housing, employment, retailing and greenspace. This is the first consultation stage in the preparation of the Site Allocations Plan. The Plan has to go through various stages of preparation and will be subject to examination in public by an independent Inspector before it can be adopted by the Council.
How can you view the documents?
The consultation documents will be accessible in the following ways:
- Web – www.leeds.gov.uk/siteallocations (please note this goes live on 3rd June).
- By Visiting the Development Enquiry Centre at The Leonardo Building, 2 Rossington St, Leeds, LS2 (Monday to Friday 08:30 – 17:00, except Wednesdays 10:00 – 17:00)
- By Visiting all libraries and one-stop centres within Leeds District.
We will also be holding a number of drop-ins across the city where people can drop-in to view the material and planning officers will be on hand to offer guidance and support.
Again if you can help us to circulate this information using your area networks to help ensure we target as many residents, groups and businesses as possible we would be grateful.
