Parish Council verdict on new house planned behind Duke

A planning application has been made for a new build house on land behind the Duke of Wellington.

The owner of land which was previously part of The Orchards is seeking permission top demolish a garage and build a four bedroomed house on the spot. Full details are available from www.leeds.gov.uk/publicaccess ref 17/02736/FU.

At the Parish Council’s May meeting, councillors decided to oppose the application on grounds of scale and access. Leeds ward councillor Rachael Proctor leads on planning in the Harewood ward and invited villagers to copy her in to any comments made. Her email is rachael.proctor@leeds.gov.uk Comments are required by 31st May
