Leeds Rhinos aim to increase parking at Kirkstall training ground

Words: John Baron

Plans to extend the car park at Leeds Rhinos training academy in Kirkstall have been submitted to Leeds City Council.

Proposals include the demolition of existing derelict garage extending the existing car park at the Bridge Road facilities by 28 new spaces.

The proposals come a week after Leeds Rugby Foundation submitted plans for additional changing and community facilities at the training ground. As reported by WLD, the two-storey detached building would be situated on the northern side of the site.

A planning statement accompanying the application states:

“High-quality facilities are essential in the maintenance of successful teams and therefore the proposed car park is essential to help maintain the standards at the training facility ground.

“The proposal has minimal impact on the surrounding highways. Existing pedestrians and vehicle access points will remain the same and car parking spaces will be gained by the proposal.”

Cycle parking will also be provided at the facility, which is also used by Leeds Tykes rugby union club.

The plans can be viewed in full here.
