The proposal has "minimal impact" on surrounding highways in Kirkstall - with the site next to a retail park.

Improvements were described as "essential" by planning officers to "maintain the standards" at the training ground.

The planning statement approving the submission stated: "High-quality facilities are essential in the maintenance of successful teams and therefore the proposed car park is essential to help maintain the standards at the training facility ground.

“The proposal has minimal impact on the surrounding highways.

"Existing pedestrians and vehicle access points will remain the same and car parking spaces will be gained by the proposal.”
