You need to have the full s106 agreement to fully understand when it kicks in. Until a few years ago they were sorted out at the end of a development, nowadays they usually become due when the first spade hits the ground

That was my understanding, so that's why I asked the questions.

Indeed. It is a bit odd to worry about whether the site has always been in Wakey or not. It is now.

Similarly Headingley probably hasn't always been part of Leeds (if you go back far enough) but it will have been when the stadium was built.

I'm sure when Headingley was not part of Leeds it was before the sport of rugby was created
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.

Rugby came to Leeds at Woodhouse Moor. Headingley was just up the road.

Leeds St.Johns were based in the centre of Leeds but had to go a short distance up the valley to Cardigan field to play

Headingley was equally just up the road.

Correct.I think they had there first meeting of players interested on Woodhouse moor about 6.30 AM before work
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.

Also from the report:

Description of the land:
The application site is a combination of arable farming defined by hedgerows and hedgerow trees and former colliery including man made landform; naturally regenerated rough grassland and plantation woodland. The former colliery land (over 28 hectares) has been remediated but contains weeds, shales, stones and areas of bare ground; in places tipping is evident. Landscape features such as watercourses, woodland, hedgerows and trees are frequent and within the wider landscape integrate the man made landform with the surrounding wooded farmland. The M62 is within a cutting along part of its route but where it comes out of the cutting is a prominent and urbanising feature within the landscape. The site is on rising land within a broad river valley. A high voltage overhead power line runs east – west across the site.

That's spot on because I went to the site early this year.

You can't grow anything on it and the grass is unsuitable for grazing.

The colliery has been knocked down, but the land is still poor and still contains concrete rafts and train lines in part.

Green belt it is not in any way.

It will be a wonderful facility to benefit the majority......
