The site provides an appropriate opportunity for a sensitive development scheme which responds to the local context. We recognise that plans for the local and wider area have evolved in recent years with the allocation of the East Leeds Extension in the Local Plan. The proposed development is designed to integrate into the existing neighbourhood and support other local objectives relating to the accessibility to open greenspace and improvements to the local footpath network.

Proposed Development

Redrow Homes have appointed a range of technical experts to assess the site’s opportunities and constraints including undertaking careful assessment of the greenspace, wildlife and trees on site which have informed the concept masterplan:-
