Leeds City Council’s masterplan for future planning and growth of the city is moving into the final phase as a further six week consultation takes place.

At a meeting of the council’s executive board last week, senior councillors discussed feedback received from a planning inspector on its Core Strategy document and decided whether to accept his recommendations.

Their decision to formally approve the changes means the strategy has progressed to the next stage – a six week public consultation exercise which will give everyone a chance to comment upon the latest changes.

Earlier this month the council welcomed an inspector planning inspector’s comments to its Core Strategy with many of the main components of the plan left unchanged.

A key element of the strategy is providing 70,000 new homes in the city – 8,000 of which would be in Morley – by 2028.

The plan, which includes suggested housing distribution across the city, received backing from the inspector.
