Last week Leeds City Council announced that, as part of the planning process, it is asking residents for their views on the future of housing, retail and greenspace in the city. There are 4 key aspects to the consultation:
1) Where should new homes be developed?
2) Where should new jobs be located?
3) Where should new shopping be located and how can our shopping centres be improved?
4) Which greenspaces should be protected and are there any that can be used in other ways?
The relevant consultation documents, called the Issues and Options for Site Allocations, are now available for viewing and you can see them at one of the following options:
By visiting the web site at www.leeds.gov.uk/siteallocations
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.
In addition there will be a number of sites across the city were residents can drop in and view the material with planning offices on hand to offer assistance. The two closest to Adel and Wharfedale will be at:
Otley – Core Resource Centre on Thursday June 20th between 3pm and 8pm
Horsforth High School Main Hall on Saturday June 22nd between 10am and 3pm
