3 Planning Process Pool of potential development sites Updated annually Rawdon Trust land entered in 2012 SHLAA Defines land use until 2028 Will require a Green Belt review Public consultation in winter 2012/13 Site Allocations DPD Strategy for Leeds until 2028 States 66,000 new dwellings required in Leeds 2300 dwellings targeted for Aireborough LCC Core Strategy

4 Green Belt Status Majority of land is Green Belt Section near Canada Road is PAS land Green Belt status would currently prevent a successful planning application Layton Lane Canada Road Murgatroyds Emmott Arms

5 RBAG Update Aim – “to protect the green belt status of Rawdon Billing and associated land” LCC Green Belt Review due this Summer as part of LDF The land is under significant threat – pressure to meet housing and employment targets 2 key objectives at present: – to prepare a written submission to LCC outlining our ‘case’ – to publicise the threat and gather local support

6 Submission to LCC (i) To support the continued Green Belt designation Recent NPPF outlines 5 key purposes of Green Belt land – to check the unrestricted sprawl of large built-up areas; – to prevent neighbouring towns from merging into one another; – to assist in safeguarding the countryside from encroachment; – to preserve the setting and special character of historic towns; and – to assist in urban regeneration, by encouraging the recycling of derelict and other urban land. Rawdon Billing Green Belt continues to serve all of these Arguably even more so since was first designated

7 Submission to LCC (ii) Critical role of Rawdon Billing as a ‘green asset’ – Physical role – Socio-economic role – Existence role Critical issues associated with loss of Green Belt -Impact on road network -Lack of public transport connectivity -Impact on local service provision

8 What next? If Green Belt designation lost – likely to be allocated in DPD Even if not allocated in DPD, planning permission for major development could come forward RBAG will oppose any development on the land With Green Belt status the land remains ‘safe’ for some time Increased emphasis on localism in planning We must act together and now – local support is critical
