Land at Breary Lane East / Leeds Road – Outcome of Planning Appeal
Bramhope & Carlton Parish Council has been informed that Miller Homes have been successful in their appeal over the planning application to build on the land between Leeds Road and Breary Lane East. The Inspectors report to Leeds City Council can be found on the followingLink.
Miller Homes applied for planning permission to build on this land in October 2013. There were over 900 responses from residents, the vast majority against the development. Leeds City Council rejected the application primarily on the grounds that it was premature as the LCC Site Allocations Plan identifying building land for the next 15 years was going through the consultation process. Miller Homes promptly appealed and the appeal was heard in April of this year.
The Secretary of State for the Communities & Local Government has decided to allow Miller Homes to build but there are 33 conditions that must be met. It is expected that Miller Homes will submit revised plans as part of a new planning application.
Residents in the vicinity of the site have already received letters from the agents acting for Miller Homes inviting them to a public consultation on the new plans on Thursday 5th January 2017. This is an informal consultation event open to all Bramhope residents between 4.30pm and 7.30pm in The Clubroom at West Park RUFC. Members of the public will be able to look at the development proposals and discuss them with the development team. Further information can be found on http://www.millerhomesbramhope.co.uk
The Parish Council and the Ward Councillors are disappointed by the outcome of the appeal (though it follows several successful appeals by major builders against LCC planning policy). The Parish Council will now read the appeal result in detail and consult with and work alongside the Ward Councillors and Leeds City Council in order to decide our future approach to this planned development. The Parish Council will attend the pubic consultation on 5th January to gain further information about Miller Homes’ proposals.
At all times the Parish Council will endeavour to reflect the views of residents and act in the interests of the community.
Chair, Bramhope & Carlton Parish Council
