Outline plans to extend a residential street in Stanningley with five new houses have been approved in principle by Leeds City Council planners. – despite six objections.

Developers say the new houses would effectively extend Vickersdale Grove and would be sited between Arthur Street, Back Bank Terrace and the recent Pavilion Close development.

The proposal is to demolish all the existing outbuildings on the site and replace them with one row of five new terrace houses set on the northwest of plot.

The houses would be three storeys high. There would be parking for two cars for each property.

The plans are only at outline phase, which means applicant Mrs A Carey, of Tadcaster, was only seeking to establish the principle of development at this stage. Detailed designs would be subject to a full planning application in the future.

Six objections had highlighted concerns with the overlooking of existing properties, overshadowing and over-dominance and highway safety, among others.

A planning officer’s report approving the application said:

“The application seeks to establish if the principle of a residential development to the site is acceptable. It is considered that a residential development would be acceptable on this brownfield site, within an established residential location served by good transport links.”

The outline approval is subject to 22 planning conditions imposed by the council, including submitting details of offsite highway works to Haydn’s Terrace and the proposed internal access corridor.
