Extra parking spaces for staff and ambulances at Bramley Ambulance Station have been approved by council planners.
The proposals, by West Yorkshire Ambulance Service, will help tackle problems with parking at the site off Stanningley Road, which has 50 staff working there but only enough parking space for 30.
Grassed areas on the site be removed to increase the number of emergency ambulance bays from two to 12, and increase number of staff bays from 30 to 52.
The existing fuel tank and bay would be relocated, and new lighting and electric car charging points would be installed.
A planning statement accompanying the application stated:
“In addition to this the whole of the site is to be re-surfaced to remove potholes and undulations that cause damage to emergency vehicles. Finally, the site will incorporate the infrastructure for future Electric Car Charging facilities for both emergency and staff vehicles.
“The proposed development will provide a sufficient number of parking spaces for staff to remove the current issues faced with parking on site, creating a safer and smoother operating parking area and working environment for staff.”
Bramley Ambulance Station is based on Railsford Rise, at the corner of Stanningley Road.
