Leeds City Council Unveils Housing And Transport Proposals
As with many of the UK’s cities, there is a need for more housing and transport infrastructure to serve growing communities in Leeds.
Leeds City Council has now unveiled its housing and transport proposals looking specifically at the East Leeds Orbital Road and the East Leeds Extension, before it takes the plans out for formal consultation.
Residents will have the opportunity to look at the plans at a series of events at the end of the month, with various venues around the city hosting the plans for drop-in events between 24 and 29 July.
As well as a virtual model of the new road, the council will also be setting out its plans for major new housing developments delivering 5,000 new homes in the city, as well as improved pedestrian and cycle infrastructure and new green space.
The East Leeds Extension is in addition to the Thorpe Park expansion, which is already taking place.
Councillor Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council executive member for regeneration, transport and planning, said that the project will “play a vital role in Leeds’ continued economic growth and success”.
He added that hundreds of local views were taken into consideration following the first stage of the planning process and stressed that the council is keen to work with communities moving forward.
“As we enter the next major phase of the programme we want to make sure local views on the planning application continue to be heard,” he asserted.
In addition to the residential construction projects taking place in Leeds at the moment, BDaily recently highlighted a new industrial construction project in the city’s Region Enterprise Zone. Three new industrial units totalling 100,000 sq ft of space are set to be constructed at Logic Leeds.
