Parkinson’s Park Removed from the SHLAA

We have heard today from Leeds City Planners, that, after strong protests by both ourselves and local councillors, Parkinson’s Park has been removed from the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, by the Leeds SHLAA Partnership.

SHLAA sites have been identified by Leeds and various local land owners as potential areas for housing.  These sites are currently being assessed for their housing potential under the Leeds Local Development Framework.

This still leaves the Kelcliffe Lane land in the SHLAA, and maybe other new areas in this part of Guiseley, but at least this is a start.  The new 2012 SHLAA map will be available in October, following a call earlier this year for more land to be earmarked as housing potential.
