Ramblers object to Wortley storage container plans


A group of ramblers have objected to plans to change vacant land to four storage container units behind Highfield Avenue and Dragon Road.

A planning statement submitted with the application states: “The proposal seeks to provide a storage area for four containers, with occasional deliveries to the site.

“Given the current levels of vehicular traffic, no new road access will need to be provided and the introduction of two vehicles with occasional access is not intensification. There is sufficient space forming a private entrance and driveway for entry to the site without hindering access or egress for the existing dwellings.”

But Ramblers Leeds Group have objected to the application. They state: “Ramblers Leeds Group objects to this application on the grounds that users of FP Leeds 195, which runs along the proposed entrance to this site, will be placed at increased risk from vehicular movements.

“…The presence of storage containers in the area close to existing houses and the cemetery is not in keeping with the neighbourhood.”

The plans can be viewed in full here.
