People are being urged to have their say on the draft Holbeck Urban Village Supplementary Planning Document which aims to continue the transformation of Holbeck Urban Village.

The new document will reflect changes to national and local planning policy and current market conditions.

If adopted, it will provide crucial information and guidance for planning officials when considering future development proposals for the area.

Councillor Richard Lewis, executive member for regeneration, transport and planning, said: “Holbeck Urban Village is a key part of the whole redevelopment of the Leeds South Bank, one of the biggest and most exciting development opportunities in Europe.

“Our vision for the Village is to create a vibrant, mixed-use development area, while also protecting its unique historic character. We want people to have their say.”

The new HUV Supplementary Planning Document will replace the previous HUV Revised Planning Framework which was agreed in 2006.

It extends the previous boundary for the area to include sites south of Sweet Street.

These sites are important because of their closeness to Temple Works and their role in connecting Leeds City Centre and the urban village to Holbeck and Beeston.
