Parish Council Meeting
Dear All, next meeting is on Monday 3rd November at 6.45pm at the Senior Citizens Centre. Pls check Parish Council Notice board (in park?) for further details, but LGCGP Bid and LDF are on the agenda - I understand it will be an update of what has happened and where we are now, but the public have an opportunity to address the council from 6.45 until 7.00pm, so it might be worthwhile NODISC-ers attending.

I have learned after doing some in depth research that there is a reliable way to obstruct the Green lane developments. It is essential that the next council meeting on the 4th of November at South Craven school be given close attention over the next few days. If this vote on the 4th is not stopped then Green lanes getting planning approval opens the gates todevelopment on all the fields in that area and would lead to an inevitable building of over 600 new houses. thats approx 2000 new inhabitants. The fact is that this request for planning permission was actualy overturned once in the past already on the basis that the council decided that there was more than enough areas allocated for development in the local area already. The reason why the council had since earmarked this area for development was because it believed it would be going forward on the Leeds City growth point bid. NOW TRHAT THAT IS NO LONGER HAPPENING IT LEAVES AN AMBIGUOUS SITUATION OVER THE COUNCILS PRESENT POSITION!
There is two things we can do to stop the development happening altogether.
1. We need as many people as possible to email the planning department at Craven district council to request clarification of how the withdrawal of the Leeds City Growth point bid effects the councils position on planning requirements in particular with reference to the Green lanes sites. They should ask also if these sites have EVER been SPECIFICALY identified as potentialy developable DESPITE the Leeds City Growth Point Bid.
Also it may be a good thing to also request any information on previous applications to develope this land and the councils decisions on those occasions if any at all.
2. We need as many poeople as possible to get to the School on the 4th and demand the above.

|basil. im with you all the way on this one
having lived in Green lane Glusburn for the last 20 years i know this part of the village would not be able to cope with a new development of 74 dwelings
it was rejected at south craven in july on the grounds of flooding/access/infrastructure of the village etc.
then to learn the council planning commitee are now not to contest the appeal after a "secret meeting" makes me really wound up
the people need an explanation as to why the council are not contesting the appeal.
if this goes ahead it will just be the start of turning our 3 villages into one big town
also did you know the devolpment on holme lane of the affordable housing. the cheapest house on there is going to be £174.000(affordable to who?)
