Councillor’s concerns over fresh Calverley housing plans

Developers have returned with fresh plans for housing on land surrounded by existing properties in Calverley – but the proposals have already sparked an objection from a councillor.

The new proposals, on land in Crowther Avenue, come after previous proposals were refused by Leeds council planners back in April amid concerns over access and a lack of detail.

Developer Frankil Ltd is applying for planning permission to build four detached six-bedroom houses at the site.

The land bordered on all sides by properties in Crowther Avenue, Carr Road, Fraser Road and Ravenscliffe Road.

Access to the six houses would be via the driveway of number 3 Crowther Avenue.

Councillor Peter Carlill (Lab, Calverley & Farsley) has objected and raised concerns including ‘over-dominant’ properties, inadequate access and loss of trees.

“At first look the scheme is practically identical to the previous scheme which was refused and therefore I have objected as before,” Cllr Carlill said.

The latest plans can be viewed in full here.

A first application after was withdrawn by applicant Frankil Ltd in 2021 following concerns over the ‘over-dominant’ buildings and protected trees on the land.
