The Design Statement was initiated by the local community. It is an expression of both the characteristics valued by local people and their aspirations in guiding new development. It is intended to identify the local distinctiveness of Oulton and Woodlesford, encourage improvement where it is needed and aims to protect the best of what is there now.
It will be adopted by Leeds City Council as a Supplementary Planning Document part of the Leeds Local Development Framework which will become the statutory development plan for the area. As an adopted policy document, it will be used as a material consideration when determining planning applications in the area it covers.
