Four new semi-detached houses will be built on land off Kent Road in Pudsey, after Leeds City Council planners give the green light.
Thefour-bedroom houses, by developer SpringRock Homes (Pudsey), will replace existing dilapidated barns, stables and storage containers on the site, to the west of Turkey Hill.
The site is classed as a brownfield site, which sits in the green belt and the plans have been scaled back from five houses to four.
A planning officer’s reports concluded: “The proposed development is considered to be acceptable in terms the principle of development, character and appearance and impacts on living conditions and the free and safe use of the highway.”
Two objections were made against the development – one from a local resident and one from Cllr Simon Seary (Cons, Pudsey). Both were concerned with the principle of development in that area.
A planning statement accompanying the application said the proposals would upgrade the site access and create a new private road. A number of new trees would also be planted within the site.
