FEBRUARY 2022 UPDATE: The Otley East development consortium put forward an unsustainable plan for 700+homes and a relief road on the outskirts of Otley in spring 2021. It is the largest local development for decades and it is of huge importance to all members of the Otley community. As of January 2022, and in response to almost 1000 local objections, the plan is currently 'on hold' and a further consultation is expected in autumn 2022.
The East of Otley Action Group was formed to hold the developers to account. We are working to ensure that the Otley Neighbourhood Plan is respected along with regional and national commitments to tackle the climate, ecological and inequality crises that we face.
EAST OF OTLEY ACTION GROUP POSITION STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO THE OTLEY EAST CONSORTIUM PLANNING APPLICATION (21/01671/OT)
We recognise the need for some more homes for individuals and families - truly affordable and built in a way that is ‘sustainable’ in all the identities of that word, both across Leeds and in Otley. We are, though, completely opposed to the proposed development (21/01671/OT) as described in the planning application...
