Abstract/Summary

This study, carried out between 1989 and 1991, was commissioned by the Department of the Environment and funded jointly by the Department and the British Geological Survey. Its principal aim was to produce a synthesis of geological information relevant to the land-use planning for development and redevelopment for a large part of the Leeds district. This report is aimed at those involved in planning and development. Much of the information is provided on a series of thematic maps, each of which concentrates on a specific aspect of the geology relevant to landuse. These are suitable for use in forward planning for development and conservation, and as a background to desk studies, prepared in advance of specific development proposals. However, they must not be used in place of results of adequate site investigations when development is being considered. In addition to the information contained in the report, sources of other more detailed data are indicated.
