Land which has been earmarked for for housing is being advertised for sale – just a few weeks after it received initial planning permission to build dozens of houses.
Outline plans to build at least 65 houses on a greenfield site off Owlcotes Road in Pudsey were approved in principle by Leeds City Council’s south and west plans panel at the end of August, despite 13 local objections.
Commercial real estate business Cushman Wakefield this week released a video of the proposed site to prospective property developers:
A website – which needs a password to enter – has been launched giving more details for developers interested inn buying the site.
Beth McQue, Development Planner at Keyland Developments Ltd, said:
“This site had already been allocated for residential development in the Leeds City Council Site Allocation Plan (2019) and the consent will now enable a housebuilder to bring forward a high-quality scheme to complement the site’s surroundings.
“Our PPA agreements are designed to enable landowners of any scale to maximise the potential from their sites without incurring any risk and in this case we have been able to bring about regeneration of a redundant site and contribute to the local authority’s long-term housing targets.”
Phil Roebuck, Partner at Cushman & Wakefield, added:
“This is an attractive site in a very popular location making it ideal for much needed family housing. The housing market has bounced back strongly post lockdown and we anticipate high levels of demand from regional and national housebuilders.”
