Chairman of Cookridge Residents Action Group (CRAG) Michael Lowry has penned a song called Soggy Bottom Calypso, calling for developers to ditch their plans to build homes.

A Leeds MP has lodged an objection to a second planning application to build homes on a green field in north Leeds.

Greg Mulholland objected to the original proposal to build 200 homes on land at Moseley Wood Bottom, which campaigners have nicknamed Soggy Bottom.

Developers Taylor Wimpey have submitted a second application and the local MP has again written to Leeds City Council to object to the proposals.

Greg has supported the Cookridge Residents Action Group saying the site should not be allocated for housing at all due to the risk of flooding.

CRAG was originally formed in 1962 to oppose similar development.

The MP said: “I am extremely concerned by the proposed development of this green field site in Cookridge, that is why I have lodged a further objection to the second application.

“It is unacceptable that the developers have submitted a second application before a decision has been made on their original application. I urge residents who have not done so already to lodge their objections.”
