Kirkstall flats plans refused for second time

Plans to build flats on a residential street in Kirkstall have been refused for a second time.

Leeds City Council planners said plans by Mr I Kouhazari for a block of five apartments at Abbeydale Vale were over dominant and also expressed ‘significant’ highway safety and access concerns. Officers said:

“The proposal is considered to have a significant detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the wider street scene through the unsympathetic design of the residential block within a constrained location which features a number of mature trees and an area of habitat.”

Similar plans for the site, which last year was the scene of local complaints about the removal of trees on the site, were refused by the council back in July.

Earlier this year Mr Kouhazari  withdrew larger proposals for a single block of nine apartments on the same site, following objections from neighbours and Kirkstall councillors.
