Green light for apartments overlooking Swinnow Morrisons petrol station

swinnow morrisons housing

Ten apartments will be built on a site next to the Swinnow Morrisons supermarket and petrol station.

South Yorkshire-based Erris Homes are already building 25 three and four bedroom homes on the adjacent site off Swinnow Road and have now received planning permission to build affordable apartments on a small pocket of land next to that development.

Developers say the three and four-bedroom dwellings are selling well, but they had a lot of enquiries for smaller one and two bedroom units in the area. They added:

“In summary, these proposals offer the chance to provide smaller, sustainable dwellings within an area where there is demand for it, adding more to the local housing stock than previous applications allowed for whilst being diminutive in scale to previous applications of a similar nature.”

The plans can be viewed in full here.

While you’re here…

Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!

There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.

We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.

And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.

To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!

And we need YOUR help to continue …

For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).

As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.

Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.
