RESPONSES NEEDED BEFORE 4th MARCH TO SUPPORT THE DELETION OF PARLINGTON FROM LEEDS SITE ALLOCATIONS PLAN
The Local Plan detailing which sites should be developed for future housing (Leeds Site Allocations Plan / SAP) has been consulted on a number of times since 2016. Thousands of people previously responded saying the Historic, Grade II Listed Parlington Estate should be removed from the Plan.
The SAP was examined by Government Inspectors during a month of hearing sessions last summer and on 3rd January 2019 they issued a note to Leeds City Council. In relation to Parlington Estate the note directed that, for the Plan to be Sound, “A Main Modification will be necessary to delete this site”.
This is fantastic news for Parlington and its supporters but the developers are showing no signs of going away and will most likely try again in a future Plan. It is therefore imperative that thousands of us RESPOND AGAIN BEFORE 5PM WEDNESDAY 4th MARCH.

However, to enable as many people to respond as easily as possible, we have confirmed that your support can be added to the representation made by SPAG and you can give us a mandate to represent you.

You should comment that you support the deletion of Parlington, but on more grounds than have been given for its deletion and therefore suggest that it should be deleted in any longer term Plan beyond the Plan review. These could include; Sustainability, Unnecessary loss of Heritage and Cultural Assets, Lack of Infrastructure (in Highways), Merging of Settlements, Economic Viability, Unnecessary Loss of Green Belt etc
