It stated: “It is considered that the scheme represents a significant improvement to the proposals that were considered in October 2020 with regards to the areas of concern highlighted by Members at that time.

“As a whole, the proposal would result in a high-quality and appropriate development, The application is therefore recommended for approval subject to the planning obligations.”

Among those obligations includes a commitment to provide 18 “affordable” flats (rented at 80 percent of the local market rate), £295,000 towards a recreation ground and £80,000 to a residential travel fund.

Members of Leeds City Council’s City Plans Panel will meet to discuss the plans on Thursday, September 2.
