'Greatly anticipated' Leeds green space development gets go-ahead
Plans for a ‘greatly anticipated’ new green space in Leeds city centre have been given the green light by the city’s council.
Proposals for Aire Park in the South Bank district of the city have been approved by Leeds City Council.
Developer Vastint is set to deliver two hectares of urban park space, comprising three areas all connected by pedestrian and cycle routes.
Construction is expected to start on the site early next year.
Andrew Cobden, MD of Vastint UK, commented: “We have worked closely with Leeds City Council throughout the planning stages to understand the needs and aspirations for the city, ensuring every detail of Aire Park is designed with these in mind.
“Securing planning consent for the park means these underutilised industrial areas will be transformed into a significant green space for the people of Leeds and visitors to enjoy as part of a thriving district for new homes and businesses.
“We also hope that the rebirth of The Crown, which is so rich in local history, will become a park-side venue for locals in the years to come. This development will make a huge difference in supporting Leeds growth by transforming the South Bank.”
