UPDATE FROM THE PLANS PANEL MEETING ON LAND TO EAST OF OTLEY ROAD

I wanted to let you know the outcome from the Plans Panel meeting today in respect of the land to the east of Otley Road and opposite Adel Church that was before the Panel this afternoon.

I and the Neighbourhood Forum spoke against the current plans at the meeting. In summary, after 2 and a half hours of debate, despite the officer recommendation to approve, the Panel voted to defer the application for a number of reasons which will be in the report that will be issued shortly.

What this means in effect is that they have not received planning permission at this stage.

I will let you know when the report is issued and then when it next comes to the Panel.
