A former industrial site in Armley could be transformed into houses and apartments, if a newly-submitted planning application gets the go ahead.

Developers Roger Lee Planning Ltd wants to build an access road with 25 apartments and 24 houses on the former Tower Works site, off Moorfield Road.

They hope two blocks of apartments will be built in the western area of the site with a landscaped area in between the units and the existing road running alongside the terrace of houses behind Moorfield Street.

A first floor apartment will be located at the northern edge of the site with garages underneath. The houses will be a mix of semi-detached and terraces, including two and three storey units.

Parking spaces and access

There will be 79 parking spaces, with access from Moorfield Road at the corner of the neighbouring recreation ground (pictured above).

In a planning statement, the developers say:

“… It would blend in appropriately with established adjacent development and would both respect and enhance the local character and identity of the area.”

The site, used to house the now demolished Leeds Meter Company, which was formed in 1931. It later became Kent Meters and then ABB Kents.

Planning permission was granted on the site for the construction of 53 flats and 9 houses in December 2009.
