The next meeting of the Adel Neighbourhood Forum will take place on 22nd April 2013.

Background

The purpose of the Adel Neighbourhood Forum is to give a renewed sense of ownership to the Adel Community on land development issues and also to ensure that local people have a strong influence over the future design, layout, character and mix of future developments.

The Vision will be to ensure a sustainable future for Adel.  A key factor is to define a clear identity for the area which would be for the benefit of the inhabitants and would also foster a spirit of pride in the local community.

There is a close dialogue with Leeds City Planning Department and a Neighbourhood Plan will be produced which will be the subject of a Community referendum. The preparation of the plan will help create new and lasting partnerships, for example between public services, businesses and the voluntary sector.

The Government has two goals for neighbourhood planning: one is that local people will have influence over where development can go and how it might look; the other is that neighbourhoods will be more welcoming of development because of a renewed sense of ownership.

Leeds City Council’s Vision for 2030 is to be the best city in the UK.

1) Leeds will be fair, open and welcoming;

2) Leeds’ economy will be prosperous and sustainable; and

3) All Leeds’ communities will be successful.
