Car sales site planned near Kirkstall wildflower meadow

A new car sales pitch for 100 cars could be created off Commercial Road in Kirkstall.

Applicant Peter Fearnley wants a car storage/car sales site next to the car wash on 58 Commercial Road.

But his proposals to Leeds City Council have run into some local opposition.

The Friends of Burley Mills and St Ann’s Woods and Wildlife group have already expressed their concern, saying the area is adjacent to the Kirkstall Wildflower Meadow. Posting on Facebook, they said:

“The wildlife in this area was affected since the removal of all the mature trees in March 2018 with no notice to Leeds City Council planning or to the local community.

“There has been less bird life in this area and no presence of bats this year, unlike the recordings we made last year.”

The proposals include the raising of ground levels by the importation of inert waste and the construction of retaining walls

Two formal written objections have also been submitted to the plans, which can be viewed in full here.
