The paper did not offer great detail about the clubhouse, other than that it would "offer internal communal amenity spaces."

A total of 279 car parking spaces are set to be offered across the site.

Developers also say a “landscaped area” would be created within the bounds, with a space dubbed “Sweet Street Square” close to the pub and clubhouse.

Members of the Leeds City Council City Plans Panel will meet to discuss the plans on Thursday, January 27. As the plans are at a pre-application stage, no decision will be made, with a more detailed full application expected to be submitted in the coming months.
