Executive Board is recommended to:
(i) Approve the Killingbeck and Seacroft Neighbourhood Framework;
(ii) Agree to the Killingbeck and Seacroft Neighbourhood Framework being used to inform the emerging site allocation plan as part of the local plan making process;
(iii) Agree to the Killingbeck and Seacroft Neighbourhood Framework being used to inform and guide development proposals and be used as a material consideration when determining planning applications; and
(iv) Accept Local Growth Funding of £1.1m and inject these sums into the capital programme for expenditure through the Brownfield Land Programme.
The Director of City Development submitted a report which provided an overview of the Council’s positive and proactive enabling activity to progress regeneration in the urban areas of East Leeds, which focussed upon the role of new housing developments in providing the investment required to deliver sustainable neighbourhood improvements. In addition, the report also set out the principles and primary proposals within the Neighbourhood Framework for Killingbeck and Seacroft and sought approval of this document. Furthermore, the report also invited the Board to note the intention to accept a Local Growth Fund loan from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, to be injected into the Capital Programme in order to support the Brownfield Land Programme.
In considering this report, emphasis was placed upon the importance of the neighbourhood planning process being equally accessible to all communities, regardless of size and location.
In welcoming the contents of the submitted report, a Member highlighted the need for such matters to now be progressed as swiftly as possible.
(a) That the progress made in bringing forward new housing development in East Leeds, be noted;
(b) That it be noted that the Council has secured a Local Growth Fund loan to support the development of brownfield sites in East Leeds and also that the Deputy Chief Executive can approve that the Council enters into the loan agreement under existing delegations;
(c) That the preparation of the Killingbeck and Seacroft Neighbourhood Framework be noted;
(d) That the development principles and approach included within the framework, as summarised within paragraphs 3.23 - 3.40 of the submitted report, be agreed;
(e) That approval be given for the Director of City Development to make future changes to the Framework in order to ensure consistency with the Site Allocations Plan upon its adoption.
