West Yorkshire Ambulance Service has submitted plans for extra parking spaces for staff and ambulances at its Bramley site.
The proposals will help tackle problems with parking at the site, which sees 50 staff working there but currently there is enough space for 30 staff.
Grassed areas would be removed to increase the number of emergency ambulance bays from two to 12, and increase number of staff bays from 30 to 54. The existing fuel tank and bay would be relocations, and new lighting and electric car charging points would be installed, if Leeds City Council supports the proposals.
A planning statement accompanying the application states:
“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, off Stanningley Road.
