PLANS to redevelop the former Yorkshire Evening Post site were approved by Leeds City Council.

Members of the council’s plans panel resolved to approve the plans which will see it transformed into a major mixed use development, providing around 50,000sqm of offices, 200 homes and a range of other uses, including cafes, shops and leisure facilities.

The scheme will bring in a new era for this key “gateway” site, which was historically the location of the world’s first wool mill, prior to being replaced by the iconic YP Print and Office Buildings in 1970.
