At our forum meeting in April 2018 the steering group presented a draft of the plan for comment and approval by the forum members.

This draft, together with the comments from forum members is now available on the website.  It consists of 6 sections under the introductory section:  Vision and Objectives

  • Housing
  • heritage and design
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Town centre
  • Traffic and Air Pollution
  • Community and Social Cohesion

The forum approved the broad direction of the draft plan and  made a number of helpful comments, these are  shown in the boxes under each section.

Please let us know if you have any views on the draft or the comments.


At the last forum, April 2017,  the Headingley Neighbourhood Plan forum voted overwhelmingly to recommend a minor change to our boundary.  Our proposed new boundary slightly reduces our area so we no longer include any of Woodhouse Moor.  No housing or other properties are included in the area of change. This means that Hyde Park Neighbourhood Plan can include the whole of Woodhouse Moor.  The council is overseeing a consultation process on this .

A copy of the application, which includes a map, is available in the key documents section of this website.

Detailed information about how to comment, should you wish to, is available below.
