The SAP form App is now up and running, with many hundreds of visitors, I think it is fair to say its doing the job it was set up for. The principle idea behind the simple app is to allow people from literally anywhere on the planet, who have an Internet connection, to make an objection to the Parlington Development proposal, which unless we win, will be included in the Site Allocations Plan (SAP) by Leeds City Council.
Remember an objection can be concluded in a matter of a few minutes using the App, even if you re-structure the wording to your personal taste. Your objection may be sidelined by the council but the more we have the less likely this will be the case. We are aiming to exceed the November effort of 3,500 objections, can we double it?
If you use the site, please note that two domains go to the same place. i.e. village.parlington.co.uk and save-parlington.org this is because the former domain was set up first and continues, whilst the latter better expresses our intentions.
Parlington town will be a blot on the landscape for centuries if this proposal gets approval, your objection will be added to a call by the people of this country to get local government to listen to the people FIRST. They only govern with consent! The proposal in no way meets the criteria set out by the council themselves for a sustainable community. Also if you look at the SAP in total not just the North East Outer Area (HCMA) but the South East Outer Area as well, we believe the housing target is in the order of 20,000 homes. Anyone travelling by public transport or private knows that the area will be swamped by such massive development. Then there are all the support services which will be affected, schools, surgeries, dentists, etc! This is shear madness, you’ve got a week to object!
