Adel Neighbourhood Plan – Leeds CC Consultation

The Adel Neighbourhood Plan has now been formally submitted to Leeds City Council for inspection and adoption. As part of this process the Council run their own consultation exercise. Over the years we have been very grateful to all those residents who have taken the time to look at the draft Plan in all its iterations and comment on them (either with messages of support or suggestions for changes) and we hope that the final version of the Plan will meet with approval from everyone with an interest in the area.

If you would still like to comment on the submitted Plan then you can do so via the Council’s webpage using this link. The full set of documents can also be viewed from that page – or using the link on the Neighbourhood Plan page of this website. If you do submit a comment we would be grateful if you would let us know via our email address:

Consultation is open until Wed 31 January. After that we should receive the planning inspector’s report and the Plan will then be voted on in a local referendum.

Neighbourhood Plan Submitted to Leeds CC

The Neighbourhood Forum Steering Group has now completed updating the Adel Neighbourhood Plan and it has been sent to the Council to start the process of getting it formally adopted. More details can be found in the Neighbourhood Plan section of the website, together with a link where residents can view and download copies of the Plan and all supporting documentation.

Annual General Meeting held

The Annual General Meeting of the Adel Neighbourhood Forum was held on Wednesday 27 September 2023 at the Adel War Memorial Association hall. Around 90 residents attended and, in addition to the formal business, there was an opportunity for open questions as well as time to meet members of the Forum Steering Group.

We would like to thank all residents who came to give their support.

The formal minutes of the meeting will be posted shortly on the Forum website.

Residents’ Survey

As we are moving towards the completion of the Adel Neighbourhood Plan ready for submission to the Council for examination and then approval by local residents in a referendum, the Forum’s Steering Group is considering what the Forum should be doing in the future.

We are asking residents to complete a short survey to give us their views on the future of the Forum to help us make sure that what we do is relevant to the local community. A paper copy of the survey is being delivered to all households in the area in the next few days, together with the invitation to residents to attend the Annual General Meeting on 27 September.

We hope that many of you will complete the survey, either by filling in the paper form and dropping it off at one of the addresses shown on the form, or by completing the online SurveyMonkey questionnaire (the two methods have the same questions – residents can use whichever method for response that they prefer). You can link to the SurveyMonkey questionnaire by clicking here but please note this is only open to residents in the Adel area.

Adel Neighbourhood Plan

For a long time the Neighbourhood Forum Steering Group has been developing a Neighbourhood Plan which can be put forward for adoption and so help to reflect the wishes of local residents in planning decisions.

We are now getting close to completion of the Plan and we want to make a draft available to residents to look at. A copy can be downloaded from:

Adel Neighbourhood Forum AGM 2021

The Adel Neighbourhood Forum is intending to hold an AGM this year on the evening of Thursday 2 December at 7:30pm.   Due to uncertainty over what the Covid situation will be then and the fact that many residents fall into the older and/or vulnerable groups and may be reluctant to attend a physical meeting we have decided to do this using Zoom.  The Agenda and call in details will be available nearer the time and can be obtained by emailing with your request. 

Please feel free to pass on this message to anybody in the Adel area who may not receive it directly, we would like to have as many Adel residents as possible involved.

If you have a question or comment you would like the Forum Steering Group to address then please email and we will endeavour to answer it on the call.  We hope that it will also be possible for residents to ask questions on the call but we would prefer to receive advance notice as a) that gives us time to prepare a considered response and b) we and are unsure how practical this will be on a large call.  We will give priority to responding to points which have been raised in advance.

For those who are unable to join the Zoom call for whatever reason we will record the meeting and make that recording available via Youtube.

Co-Chairs, Adel Neighbourhood Forum
