Major Pre-Application Planning Enquiry PREAPP/17/00362 – Manor Farm, Otley Road, Adel

I have been sent the information below from the Planning Officer, in respect of a pre-application enquiry in relation to the above property:

“I am writing to you in relation to the above major pre-application enquiry which we have recently received.

“The site in question is currently operated by Greentek, a manufacturing firm who produce specialist equipment for golf course maintenance, and currently includes a number of buildings and associated structures and car parking areas. A location plan of the site is attached to this email which shows the location of these buildings. 

In summary the applicant is proposing to develop the site for residential housing by converting the existing buildings under permitted development rights, albeit with the prior approval of the Council on a number of relevant matters.”

I was not aware this was on the horizon and I shall be meeting with the planning officer and the proposer of the development in early July as part of the pre-application process.
