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.
