West Ardsley Village

Welcome to the West Ardsley community (WF3)

Housing at Haigh Wood Site

Two years ago a planning application for 299 houses was published by Leeds City Council,

Yesterday that housing application was turned down by Leeds City Council Councillors.

West Ardsley Action group would like to thank EVERYONE who has been involved, those who have written objection letters, those who attended meetings, those who asked questions, those who displayed posters, those who were in the leaflet delivery army, those who came out on the site visits and protests and those who came to the council offices yesterday showing their support for the village and the green spaces of West Ardsley.

An incredibly huge thank you to those on the steering committee who spent hours writing technical objections and who found holes in the councils documents.

It has certainly proved that West Ardsley community spirit is alive and well.

Thank you

Haighwood Planning

Sadly the campaign to protect our green spaces has hit a snag, Highways have said they have no objections to the proposed 299 houses! 

We are therefore taking up arms and upping the fight so to speak, the battle continues.

We need as much support as possible, please write objections to Leeds City council, please ask your parents, your siblimngs, your children, your friends, their friends- in fact any one you can think of to support us by penning a letter

thank you
