Welcome to Bardsey Action Group

Bardsey Action Group (BAG) exists to protect the green belt around the village of Bardsey, in NE Leeds, from the threat of uncontrolled and unsustainable housing development. Formed in 1993, BAG has been brought back to action in 2016 because of a proposal by landowner Bramham Estate to build 150 houses on a field within the greenbelt.

To object to the proposal you need to set up an account (easy to do) and confirm it via email, then file your objection. Paste this link into your browser.

If you then want to email BAG with your objection, we would be happy to put it on the site with or without your name.

WHAT WE ARE DOING

Nearly 200 Bardsey residents recently attended the Bramham Estate proposal exhibition and immediately signed up with us to register their concerns! A team of people is in now place to co-ordinate BAG’s activity.

We have been in contact with Leeds City Council and were given the opportunity to make our views known at a pre-application meeting. The estate gave a presentation but immediately afterwards we were able to brief councillors about some of the issues raised, and to express our deep concerns.

We are in contact with the Council for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE), which is fighting against similar threats elsewhere in Yorkshire.

As we don’t know when a formal application will be submitted we are building up the organisation we will need to represent Bardsey residents’ concerns when this happens.
