Five Lane Ends: Could car sales site become housing?


Plans to transform the site of a well-known garage and second-hand car lot at the busy Five Lane Ends junction in Wortley has been submitted.

Developer Ian Stones, of Gildersome, has submitted initial proposals for five three-bedroom detached houses off Oldfield Lane.

The initial outline plans submitted to Leeds City Council includes seven parking spaces. Mr Stones’ plans for the site can be found here.

The planning notice, which was posted last week, has so far attracted one comment from a local resident, who raised issues about building housing off an already busy road. They added:

“Five Lanes roundabout is an extremely busy and dangerous roundabout.”

The resident also said seven parking spaces for five houses was not enough.

In 2011 an application to turn the site into a hand car wash was withdrawn and the following year a similar application was refused by the council. View details of those plans here.
