A light industrial workshop in Wortley could be transformed into a new Electrical Training Centre, if plans submitted to Leeds City Council are approved.
Applicant XS Training provide a range of NVQ level and other qualification courses for electrical professionals in West Yorkshire and want to transform one of the detached workshop units off Wortley Moor Lane into a new facility.
They say the majority of the floor area will be open plan housing practical electrical equipment, as well as a film studio for online courses, an office and toilet area. Five full time and one part time jobs would be created.
A planning statement submitted with the application states: “The property is within an area of industrial and commercial uses and is not located near any residential properties.
“The proposal would not unduly impact upon neighbouring businesses amenity and the proposed use is inherently less noise than any industrial/commercial use which is acceptable and established on the site.”
The plans state existing parking spaces would be used for staff and students.
“While the spaces are not formally marked out at present, more than 10 cars can be accommodated on the site which exceeds the applicant’s needs, on street parking is also unrestricted,” the application states. “Electric vehicle charging points will be installed to the property frontage.”
