Planning Appeal APP/N4720/W/14/3001480 re Planning Application – 14/05194/FU, 427 Otley Road, Leeds LS16 6AJ (next to Co-Op) – Change of Use of Shop to Hot Food Take Away

I refer to the above and would confirm that I have been advised of the following appeal details in respect of the above planning application, as follows:

Planning Inspectorate Reference:           APP/N4720/W/14/3001480

Site:                427 Otley Road Leeds LS16 6AJ

Proposal:       Change of Use of Shop to Hot Food Take Away and Installation of Ventilation Flue

The Planning Inspectorate has received the above appeal against refusal. It will be dealt with by Written Representations procedure and the Inspector will carry out a site visit.

Please feel free to pass this information on to any of your friends or neighbours so that they can be made aware that an appeal has been submitted. The original reason for refusal is set out below:

The Local Planning Authority considers that, by reason of the likelihood of delivery and customer vehicles parking and waiting on Otley Road, the proposed A5 takeaway will result in vehicles parking in an unsafe and unsuitable manner to the detriment of highway safety locally. As such, the development is contrary to policies P3 and T2 of the Leeds Core Strategy and GP5 of the saved Leeds Unitary Development Plan (2006).

The Inspector will only review the original refusal reasons but any comments already made in respect of the original application will be sent to the Planning Inspectorate and the appellant. If you would like to make further comments you can use the online appeals service at

You can also write, enclosing 3 copies, to the Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/10B Eagle Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol BS1 6PN by 17th February 2015, quoting their reference number.

All documents relating to the appeal, including comments and the decision, will appear on the Council’s website at and
