As part of the Aireborough Festival, we are going to have an Exhibition of the proposed Leeds Housing Site Allocations, along with other information about Aireborough’ housing situation and good design.
There will be feedback forms for you to give your views – and probably a wall for you to post comments on for public view. We have also asked Leeds Councillors and Planning Officers to attend if they wish – but do not know if they are coming. We stress, this is not an official Leeds public consultation, it is an exhibition and consultation organized by the Aireborough Neighbourhood Forum to provide local people with information on development, planning rules and design. And, so that we have the information we need for a Neighbourhood Plan.
There will also be a Housing Needs Survey for the us to try to establish just what the actual housing need is for people in Aireborough. If you cannot get to the Exhibition and would like us to email you a survey, then please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have asked several Developers who have outline ideas for some of the sites, on Coach Road, Gill Lane and Ings Lane to come and show you their thoughts, so that you can talk with them at early stages in their thinking. We stress, these are NOT planning applications, they are potential developments, and the aim is for Developers to get feedback from local people on what might be suitable for these sites, IF Leeds City Council allocate them for housing development. It is an important part of neighbourhood planning that the design of any new housing on approved sites is thought through carefully, and fits into the local area, with the relevant infrastructure.
It is also important for potential Developers to understand the issues and opportunities around sites and in Aireborough in general. Planning rules require that developers engage with local communities, and understand their concerns, issues, desires and needs.
The Exhibition will be at
2 – 4pm Tuesday 10th February
7- 9pm Tuesday 10th February
