New development application submitted for Church Drive

A revised application for planning permission has been submitted for land between 11 and 37 Church Drive, opposite the turning circle.

The land was originally green space between a development of council houses, some of which are now in private ownership and others still held by an arms length housing association set up by Leeds City Council. The housing association sold the land with outline planning permission for two bungalows and since then planning applications have been lodged for four houses and then three. Both applications were rejected.

The latest application by JWT Developments, very similar to the last, is likely to be similarly contested. Villagers can see the full application by following this link and using reference number 15/06760/FU. Comments and objections can be lodged online on or before Thursday 26 May.
