As many of you are aware Leeds Rhinos made an announcement about the situation regarding their planning applications for Headingley, Tingley and the Tetley Field site at Weetwood.
The club have advised that due to complexities in the planning process they are not able to proceed at this time and are waiting for advice and on the outcome of the site allocation process before proceeding further.
Not only have over 500 individuals objected to the Tetley Field planning application, but a number of local organisations and other important stakeholders have made representations against the application too. These include several residents associations, local and national bodies, the Leeds City Council Conservation Officer and local Councillors.
We have set up a petition to try and gain as many signatures as possible. Please can you circulate this far and wide and sign up? Thank you.
Over the weekend we have been made aware that Yorkshire County Cricket Club have made a statement to the press that they are starting work on the development of the football stand this is despite the fact that no planning permission has been granted...
Please take a look at this leaflet shared by Anja Scmidt, put together at the School of Earth and Environment of the University of Leeds that highlights the value of urban green spaces and cites a lot of scientific studies.
Please read and share this report with friends and family. It can be used to help write your letter of objections.
