Leeds homes plan to be approved?

l

A new housing complex on a former care home in Horsforth could be approved at a meeting today.

Yorkshire Housing wants to build 28 affordable apartments and 13 private houses at the former St Joseph’s Convalescent Home on Outwood Lane.

The plan will for the second time be discussed at Leeds City Council’s South and West Plans Panel at Civic Hall from 1.30pm.

However it has been recommended that the proposals be deferred to the authority’s chief planning officer, Tim Hill, for approval on the condition that the developer commits to creating at least 68 per cent affordable homes, contributes amenity space and highways work off the site.

Some residents had raised concerns about the plans ahead of it first being discussed by councillors.

In an objection, neighbouring resident Andrew Fowler said: “The proposed developments will have the greatest impact on my property on Outwood Lane, being literally next door.

“On numerous occasions I have mentioned that any new development (which I welcome) should give due consideration to the effect it would have on my property, primarily the impact of not receiving direct sunlight which we have enjoyed for over 30 years.”

Gary Falconer, of Oliver Hill, expressed concern about people who would be living at the site, saying “the buildings are too big with too many residents”.

But the builder has said its plans are a “well-designed and sustainable form of development” and “would preserve the character and appearance of the Horsforth Cragg Hill & Woodside and the Newlay Conservation Areas”.
