North Leeds: Flats planned for GP site

Have your say

PLANS have been drawn up for a flats development in the Alwoodley area of Leeds.

The three-storey complex would stand on the site of Nursery Lane GP surgery, which has been earmarked for demolition.

A document submitted to Leeds City Council as part of an application for planning permission says the new building would be home to eight two-bed flats providing “well-proportioned family accommodation”.

It also says the proposed development in north Leeds would be “respectful of the character and scale of the surrounding landscape”.

Objections to the planning application have been lodged by residents in neighbouring properties worried about a loss of privacy.
