Refusal of Planning Applications for housing opposite Adel Parish Church on ancient green fields was warmly welcomed by the local community. The Developers now have the right of Appeal to the Planning Inspector. Ian Bond, Co-Chairman of the Forum said “We have won the first battle but are not complacent and we now plan to build a fighting fund to oppose any revised applications or appeals. The fighting fund is essential to conduct further research to back up our opposition particularly on Traffic and Heritage grounds. Cheques should be made payable to Adel Neighbourhood Forum, c/o 6 Adel Wood Gardens, Adel, Leeds, LS16 8JH.
“Call my Wine Bluff” performed by Three ‘Muscateers‘
Our first fund raising event will be “Call My Wine Bluff” on Friday, 23rd January at 7.15pm for 7.30pm in The Old Stables, Back Church Lane, behind Adel Parish Church, LS16 8DW. Join us for a fun evening with a difference. The Three Muscateers each describe a wine but only one is telling the truth. Working together on a table of eight can you pick the right one? Tickets are £19.50 each which includes generous tastings of six different quality wines accompanied by cheese board, bread and biscuits. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call him on 0792 921 8037 to book places.
Meanwhile the Forum is now on track to produce a draft Plan. This will set out our proposed policies and will also incorporate the relevant information from the earlier Adel Neighbourhood Design Statement. Consultation will take place on The Plan in the early months of this year and then, as amended by the consultation, will be subject to a Referendum for final ratification.
