Derelict industrial buildings off Stanningley Road will be replaced with eight new unit after plans were approved by Leeds City Council.
Swinnow Grange Mills is a series of former Victorian mill buildings housing small to medium-sized businesses.
Its owners – Bramley-based Andromeda Investments 2 – aim to re-vitalise the area by replacing the now-demolished disused buildings and shed on the south of the site them with new two-storey starter units, along with new access gates to the site.
An existing central car park on the site will be formalised with new surfacing and 66 marked bays.
A council planning officer’s report approving the application concludes:
“… Given the commercial location of the site and subject to conditions to limit noise levels, the proposal will not be unduly detrimental to the amenity of the nearest noise sensitive occupants of neighbours uses or the nearest residential neighbours.
“There will also be economic benefits brought forward by the proposal which expands an existing commercial area and providing further employment opportunities that will assist in economic growth.”
