a DECISION on proposals for 744 new flats in Holbeck Urban Village has been deferred by planning chiefs for further talks with the developer.

The application for Sweet Street and Manor Road attracted criticism from Leeds City Council’s City Plans Panel for the design, and wider concerns about the amount of car parking. There was, however, agreement that the scheme would be welcome in an area where development had recently stalled and new housing is in huge demand.

A spokesperson for developers Dandara said the firm was “disappointed” not to get planning consent but would “address the comments made” and “revise our proposal over the next few weeks”.
