A GP surgery in the Alwoodley area in north Leeds, which is earmarked for demolition, will become the site of a new flat development if the council approves of the submitted plans.

The application to Leeds City Council outlines plans for a three-storey complex, including eight two-bed flats, providing what is described as “well-proportioned family accommodation.”

Although the proposed development will, they say, be “respectful of the character and scale of the surrounding landscape,” some local residents have objected on the grounds of loss of privacy.

However, in the nearby north Leeds area of Cookridge, resistance to a planned housing development has taken an unusual turn. Taylor Wimpey’s plan to build 100 new homes on a site called Soggy Bottom has been criticised before, due to the flooding risk. But the renewed efforts to build on that land have been met with a new protest song and video, performed naked by the chairman of Cookridge Residents’ Action Group (CRAG).

Council members are set to meet with CRAG to discuss the issues raised in the next few weeks, presumably with their clothes on.
