Controversial plans to temporarily increase skip storage at a Stanningley scrap metal yard have been withdrawn by the applicants.

The owners of the Vickersadale site earlier this year submitted plans for car parking, relocating access to the site, additional skip storage and the construction of four-metre concrete walls and concrete bays for the storage of recycled metals.

The plans included part of the site of the Old Roundabout pub, which was demolished last year.

Some local residents had raised concerns about excessive noise and poor air quality on the site.

No reason has been given for the withdrawal of the latest planning application.

Last year outline proposals for more than 40 properties were approved for the Vickersdale site, to the relief of some neighbouring residents who had encountered problems with noise and dust.

The applicants said during the summer that they still intend to build housing and will submit a detailed planning application ‘in due course’.

The outline housing proposals approved last year for around 48 properties included the demolition of the existing commercial buildings on the scrap yard site.
