Leeds Dock scheme gets go-ahead

A scheme to bring a care home, primary school and flats to a site near Leeds Dock has been approved.

The “multi-generational” complex on Sayner Lane is modelled on similar schemes in Japan and the Netherlands.

It will feature a 72-bed care home and a block of 80 apartments as well as a nursery, café and the school.

The development by Citu will be car-free, except for a small number of disabled parking spaces and eight visitor spaces for the care home.

The planning application was passed unanimously by members of Leeds City Council’s city plans panel.
