Developer told to pull down home in Burley Road planning saga

Latest plans to build a new house on the site of a historic former lodge house in Burley have been refused by Leeds City Council planners.

It’s the latest twist in a long-running planning saga the council has also issued an enforcement notice that a new property at former St Anne’s Villa site at 378 Burley Road has to be demolished as it is not in line with the original planning consent.

As previously reported, residents have opposed a number of applications on the site.

The proposals would create a new dwelling in place of the original lodge house, the total demolition of which was approved in 2014.

Posting on social media, Cllr Fiona Venner (Lab, Kirkstall) welcomed the decision and said:

“The developer has appealed this, but only on the grounds of the time frame. The appeal goes to the Planning Inspectorate in Bristol who are an independent body and will decide whether to uphold our time frame, or give him more time. But, either way; the current application has been refused and the enforcement notice to demolish the building stands.”
