Housing Site Allocations in Adel

Recommendations by Leeds City Council –┬áHousing Site Allocations in Adel

A Master-plan outlining the future of housing development over the next 15 years has recommended an “ambitious target” of building 70,000 new homes. Some community campaigners have branded it “excessive” suggesting 50,000 whilst house builders wanted 90,000 new homes. The Council say that 65% of new housing will be built on brown field land.

The sites recommended in Adel are listed below.

Site Ref & Description, Housing Capacity, Colour Code

1033 Government Blds Otley Road, 130, Green
684 Church Lane Centurion Fields, 45, Green
685 Eastmoor Tile Lane, 67, Green
1178A South of Dunstarn Lane Lane, 68, Green
687 Dunstarn Lane, 28, Green
1299A Bodington Hall, 126, Green
2130 Church Lane (PAS Field), 58 plus School, Amber

Colour Green means suitable for development
Colour Amber, Protected Area of Search Field planning subject to design, conservation and access.

Once the internal processes are complete the document will go out for public consultation. This is expected to be after the General Election. There is no information at present regarding the phasing of the allocations.

The issue is further complicated by the refusal by Leeds City Council of applications on the PAS Field by Hallam Land (88 homes on the Otley Road site) and David Wilson Homes (60 homes with access onto Church Lane). These Developers may appeal those decisions.

Meanwhile The Forum is finalising The Neighbourhood Plan which will set out our proposed policies. Adel Residents and Businesses are invited to discuss them at the next meeting of the Adel Neighbourhood Forum which will take place on Wednesday, 15th April 2015 at 7.00pm in The Gladys Tetley Room, The Adel War Memorial Hall, Church Lane, Adel LS16 8DE.

We now have vacancies on the Forum so if you have a passion for our community come along without commitment, we would love to hear from you. Times can be arranged to suit your personal circumstances.
