to agree possible solutions for further investigation
Who was this consultation aimed at?
local communities throughout Leeds
the business community
anyone else interested in housing issues
What were you being asked?
We were inviting your views on the following specific questions:
Q1: What factors do you think should influence the number of new homes that are built in Leeds?
Q2: For Leeds to meet its housing target there will need to be development on both brownfield and greenfield sites. Do you have any views on how this is done?
Q3: How can more housing be developed while protecting the character and identity of our communities, towns and villages?
Q4: What do you think are the priority services and facilities that are needed to support new homes?
Q5: There is a shortage of homes that are affordable in every part of the Leeds district. What do you think is the best way to address this shortage?
A number of documents were prepared in advance of the consultation, along with summaries of the feedback received throughout the consultation period.
