Plans submitted for residential development on flooded factory site

Plans have been submitted for a residential development of the former ThyssenKrup factory site on Kirkstall Road in Leeds, which closed after the 2015 Boxing Day floods.

The residential arm of Prospect Estates, supported by Loroc Architects, has  submitted outline planning permission documents for the creation of 272 units over four blocks.

The ThyssenKrup factory site has been vacant  since it closed after being flooded in the 2015 Boxing Day floods. Around 90 jobs were lost.

Prospect Estates said the development would range between four and eight storeys. The firm said units would be made up of 1,2 and 3 bedrooms apartments.  Onsite parking and private amenity space also forms part of the plans.

John Lund ,chairman of Prospect Estates said “This redevelopment will help regenerate a prominent vacant site and provide high quality homes with easy access to Leeds City Centre.”
