Mix of apartments and family homes proposed for housing site

Proposals for 130 new homes in Wetherby have been submitted to Leeds City Council by housebuilder Persimmon.

The site at Sandbeck Lane is allocated for housing in Leeds City Council’s Local Plan.

Persimmon wants to deliver a mix of property types ranging from apartments through to two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

It is proposed that 46 homes on the development will be transferred to a local housing association.

The planned development includes a £1.1m Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) contribution, earmarked to support local infrastructure improvements.

James Parkin, land director at Persimmon West Yorkshire, said: “We’re thrilled to have submitted plans for 130 exemplary new homes in Wetherby.

“We’ve been working closely with residents, councillors, the Better Wetherby Partnership and Wetherby Civic Society to ensure the views of community are reflected in these proposals.

“Feedback at the recent public exhibition was positive and so we’re looking forward to moving these plans forward in the coming months.”
