Park Likely To Be Taken Out Of The SHLAA

As a result of Cllr Latty’s intervention on the Park being in the SHLAA,  and some complaints received from individual Friends, Leeds Planning asked FOPP for a map of the Park – which we have now given them.   Planning have said it is highly likely that the land will be removed from the database at the next SHLAA Partnership meeting in June/July 2012.

It does seem incredible, that the people who have the final say on what land is in or out of the SHLAA, is a Partnership team of people consisting of 3 developers, 1 housing association person, 3 planners, a member of Yorkshire Forward, a member from the Council for the Protection of Rural England, and one ‘community representative!!

This still leaves the Kelcliffe Lane land in the SHLAA, but at least this will be a start – we will keep you posted.
