‘We the undersigned call upon Leeds City Council to return Kirklees Knoll, Farsley to the Green Belt (Leeds City Council removed this land from the Green Belt in the late 1990s as part of their Unitary Development Plan, despite strong local objections). The Government have now presented the Council with an opportunity though the preparation of the Local Development Plan to return this land to the Green Belt. We call on Leeds City Council not to miss this opportunity as we believe development of Kirklees Knoll would be totally unsustainable, unacceptable and bring the already overloaded infrastructure to breaking point.’

    Building on greenbelt land should be only permitted when all other sources of land supply have been used. Previously developed
    land should also be used and all the thousands of empty homes also brought
    back into use. More innovative ways to provide
    housing that is truly affordable, not the current model being offered which
    provides only financial benefits to the builders not
    people who are in genuine housing need. The builders
    will have no interest in brownfield sites to build on
    they are already making requests for greenbelt land to be released early. To provide affordable housing is the reason they use to bend the planning rules. People in need of homes that are affordable to them
    whether to rent or buy will still be left out in the cold.

    Access out of this development to either a left turn only onto a 60mph ring road or into a pinch point in Rodley! 500+ cars is not manageable!

    House builders CANNOT be allowed to get away with this - it would make a mockery of a plan-led system, of localism, of community engagement and of elected councillors having an input.
