You may be interested to know that we have recently received the following information in respect of the above from Cllr Barry Anderson.
The Council have today (28th) launched their consultation on the Core Strategy, which is the city plan that will replace the current Unitary Development Policy (UDP) in the city.
The Core Strategy sets out the Council’s vision for the future development of Leeds over the next 15 years, and is the principal document in the Local Development Framework. It addresses a wide range of environmental, social and economic considerations in order to address the challenges and opportunities which Leeds faces. The Core Strategy is shaped by a range of policies, including the Vision for Leeds (Community Strategy) and national guidance.
This is an important document and will have a significant effect on the lives of all residents of Leeds. There will be a subsequent document issued in the future where the individual sites where development might be possible will be issued and at this stage it will become very controversial. However, at this stage it is vitally important that your views on the high level strategy are made clear to the Council in terms of the priorities they see for retail development, employment development and probably most importantly, housing development, in the city.
Please bring this information to the attention of your friends and neighbours who may not have access to the internet as it is important that everyone contributes to this debate.
