LEEDS CITY COUNCIL ARE PREPARED TO SEE CHERISHED GREENBELT LAND AND HISTORICAL FOREST SWALLOWED UP BY MASSIVE UNRESTRICTED HOUSING! DEVELOPMENTS.
Leeds City Council are quite prepared to support the development of 5000 upmarket houses in an area of historical and agricultural significance. Clearly the local infrastructure will not support such an ambitious plan.
This development may well satisfy the ambitions of the ‘better off’ but will do nothing to help the people at the bottom of the housing ladder -
It will, of course, swell the coffers of a greedy, debt ridden Council!
HELP DEFEAT THIS PROPOSAL.
PLEASE SUPPORT THE

Well done to the

I don’t suppose we will ever know just how much of Leeds Council Tax Payers money went in to pursuing a housing scheme that was destined to fail from the start.
Leeds City Council chose to support a scheme that would have seen up to five thousand houses (yes 5000) built on greenbelt land in the countryside east of the city. Acre upon acre of ancient much loved woodland and productive farmland lost forever!
These homes were not be much needed starter homes. No! This was going to be a quite grand affair aimed mainly at the ‘well healed’ members of society, those willing and able to pay the sort of Council Tax L.C.C. loves to collect and squander on other madcap ideas.
This project included shops, a school, medical facilities and a whole raft of other goodies. It wasn’t just a housing development, it was a new village, and their intention was to slip it in under the radar.
Oblivious to the fact that 5000 homes built in this unique countryside would mean at least 10,000 cars a day spewing out onto relatively narrow, winding country roads connecting a number of small villages and a small town with a Main Street already a tangle of cars, busses and shoppers at the best of times and a manic bottleneck as the rush hour gets underway into Leeds itself. Worse to come is late afternoon as the local Academy ends its day and around 2000 students spill out -
Of course our bungling Council contented itself with reassurances from the developers that the majority of vehicles would slip away quietly onto the nearby motorway and have very little effect on the local environment. How on earth did they work that out.
It was only when a group of determined local people -
The whole episode has cost residents many thousands of pounds not to mention monies and assistance from sympathetic and highly principled benefactors.
The cost of fighting authoritarian regimes sympathetic to ruthless developers does not come cheap. If developers are content to waste investors money on feckless housing projects then that’s their business but any sensible Council should be more careful when spending taxpayers money.
But isn’t that Labour-
UKIP policy is clear and simple.
There will be no development of green-
