Localism

Localism and Statement of Community Involvement – MX2-39 was brought forward after the call for sites (SHLAA) was closed, so I have not had the opportunity to fully consider the site sequentially alongside alternatives that have already been sieved out from the process. I believe that this contradicts both the principles set out in the Localism Act and Leeds City Council’s own statement of community involvement. Both of these specify that everyone should have a say in where development happens. MX2-39 has been brought forward without following due process and sequential testing against other sites. On this basis I object to the allocation.
