WE MUST NOT ALLOW THIS  DEVIOUS  DECEPTION   TO DESTROY OUR  DEMOCRACY!

 striving to restore sovereignty to the United Kingdom and trust into politics!

the UK independence party LEEDS June 23rd 2016. The United Kingdom held a referendum. Were we to leave the EU or remain? 17.4 million people voted overwhelmingly to leave. Since then there has been an unprecedented conspiracy to thwart the will of the people. We must not allow this undemocratic skulduggery to prevail. This may well be the way of the British Establishment but this is not the way of  the  British People

LEEDS CITY COUNCIL ARE PREPARED TO SEE CHERISHED GREENBELT LAND AND HISTORICAL FOREST SWALLOWED UP BY MASSIVE UNRESTRICTED HOUSING! DEVELOPMENTS.   

YOU MAY REMEMBER  OUR HEADLINE: WELL TODAYS  ANNOUNCMENT:

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 - the people who you would expect a Labour Council to support.


It will, of course, swell the coffers of a greedy, debt ridden Council!


HELP DEFEAT THIS PROPOSAL.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE

SAVE PARLINGTON ACTION GROUP



is a victory for common sense and illustrates perfectly how people, with good leadership and perseverance, can stand up to authoritarian councils and unscrupulous developers.


Well done to the

‘Save Parlington Action Group’

and all other wonderful and

principled people who made this

victory possible.

UKIP Leeds applauds your

hard work and dedication.




For those unaware of the Parlington story below is a brief outline events. PARLINGTON A PROPER LEEDS CITY COUNCIL COCK-UP.   SO WILL HEADS ROLL? PRETTY UNLIKELY. IT’S JUST ANOTHER DAY AT LABOUR-CONTROLLED L.C.C.

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 - many into mums runabout and a great majority of the remainder crisscrossing Garforth Main Street in search of  pasties, buns and other appetite appeasers.

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 - to whom we will be eternally grateful - formed the ‘Save Parlington Action Group’ that the true extent of this development became clear. With great leadership, good organisation and unbelievable fund raising abilities they managed to inspire and mobilise the residents of the area into the mass objecting machine that finally defeated this scurrilous proposal.

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-led Leeds City Council all over. No wonder this City’s around £2 billion in debt.


UKIP policy is clear and simple.

There will be no development of green-belt land whilst brown-field sites remain available!
