Community opposes Green Belt housing plans

Local residents and community groups around Meanwood are working together to oppose a planning application for housing in the Meanwood Valley Green Belt.

A campaign has been launched to encourage as many people as possible to object to a planning application to build 45 residential dwellings on Tetley Field in the Meanwood Valley. Tetley Field is a beautiful, wildlife-rich 11 acre field bordering Meanwood Park in the Meanwood Valley Green Belt.

The "Keep Meanwood Valley Special" campaign is urging the public to object to this application before the deadline of 10 June. The campaign has been launched by local residents with the support of two local community associations - Weetwood Residents Association and Meanwood Valley Partnership.

The campaign has launched a new website, www.sogtetleyfield.com, which provides information on how people can object to the application (either online or by post). The campaign has also taken out a stall at the Meanwood Family Fun Day on Bank Holiday Monday, where people can find out more and get help with making their Objection.

On social media, you can follow the campaign at www.facebook.com/savetetleyfield or #tetleyfield on Twitter.

If preserving the Green Belt around Leeds is important to you, please object to the application before 10 June, and encourage others to do the same!
