East Leeds Orbital Road – proposals to change the priorities at the Coronation Tree Junction.

Thanks to the many Scholes and Barwick residents who attended the Parish Council’s discussion meeting at the Manor House on Friday 26th October.

The Parish Council made it clear that it opposes Leeds City Council’s proposed changes to the traffic flows and priorities to the Coronation Tree junction in Scholes.

At the meeting we requested residents’ feedback and comments regarding the changes. Attendees provided a completed questionnaire; the feedback on these will be collated and reviewed as soon as possible and the information will be made available to residents at the earliest opportunity.

Thanks also to the Ward Councillors Matthew Robinson, Sam Firth and to Mark Dobson for their attendance. If they weren’t aware of the strength of residents’ feelings about this important matter, they do now.

The meeting was, intentionally, an initial meeting. The next planned Parish Council session is scheduled for 24th November 2018 at the Manor House – this session is now likely to cover matters and issues relating to:

     1. 300 houses appeal Public Inquiry

    2. The Coronation Tree Junction

    3. ELOR

If you have any questions regarding the meeting of 26th October please put them in writing to the Clerk of the Parish Council at ClerkLS154@BTInternet.Com. Correspondence is logged and systematically answered, and this way of working provides us all with assurances that the PC is functioning effectively.

Non-compliance with Planning Regulations

Although most people are careful to ensure that any work they have done is compliant with Planning Regulations – there are a few who carry out work without seeking planning permission.

Leeds City Council have a small team who investigate reported breaches known as Planning Compliance (or Planning Enforcement).

Once a quarter, they produce a report of the key cases they are investigating in the Harewood Ward.

Click HERE if you think someone is doing something without getting planning permission to see if the case is already being investigated.

The Parish Council is a statutory consultee regarding most Planning Applications, although Leeds City Council take note of our comments, the final decision sits with them, they don’t have to take our advice! Below is a table showing recent Planning Applications and the outcome.
