Developers behind contested plans to build a £4 million Pudsey residents are set to meet local residents for crunch talks on Friday.

Earlier this month Leeds councillors said the planned new 86-bedroom home, which could create more than 80 jobs, needed to be smaller than the three-storey development currently planned on Crawshaw Road.

Bosses at Angela Swift Developments have now agreed to meet objectors to discuss their concerns on Friday afternoon at Pudsey Civic Hall.

People living inm neighbouring houses have expressed concerns over parking, the impact of extra traffic on a congested road and the height of the new building, which would be three storeys high plus an apex roof.

Councillors on the south and west plans panel recently deferred making a final decision on the plans and asked the developers to come back with smaller proposals for the site, which used to house the council-run 36-bedroom Musgrave Court Care Home.

Musgrave Court was closed and declared surplus to requirements by cash-strapped Leeds City Council almost four years ago. The home was demolished and the land sold by the council in 2016.

What time on Friday?

Hi Keely, it’s not a public nmeeting but one aimed at residents in the immediate vicinity (who have been personally invited by the developer), which is why we haven’t included the time in our report.

Keely says:

Ah. Thank you for clarifying :-).
