Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The site, comprising two parcels of land shown coloured blue on the plans attached, measures approximately 0.85 ha (2.1 acres) and is located around 5 miles east of Leeds city centre in the established residential area of Swarcliffe.

Part of the site was formerly occupied by St Gregory's RC Primary School which was vacated and demolished to leave a predominantly flat site ready for development. The site is located in the heart of Swarcliffe adjacent to St Gregory's Youth and Adult Centre and backing on to an area of recreational green space. The Swarcliffe estate has recently undergone a 100m housing refurbishment scheme and Persimmon Homes have redeveloped parts of the estate with new build private housing.

The nearby Langbar Retail Centre on Swarcliffe Avenue is anchored by Co-op stores and provides local shopping facilities and Seacroft Green Shopping Centre, anchored by a Tesco Extra store is less than 1 mile to the east of the site. There is easy access to Leeds, York and Harrogate via the nearby A64 York Road and A6110 Leeds Ring Road.

The site has been identified in the Leeds City Council Draft Site Allocations Plan (SAP) as being suitable for residential development (subject to planning), with a site capacity of 33 houses. An extract from the SAP and a site constraints plan outlining key design principles are included in the additional documents which are available to download below.

In accordance with the requirements of Core Strategy policy G4, a commuted sum will be required in lieu of on-site green space provision in this instance. This sum is intended to be used towards open space improvements and play provision on the adjacent recreational land to the south west of the site and will be calculated based on the number of units proposed and secured via a legal agreement as part of any planning application for the development of the site.
All schemes should reflect the guidance in the "Street Design Guide" Supplementary Planning Document. All documents are available on www.leeds.gov.uk/ldf. Please also see the Council's Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) "Parking", Jan 2016 for guidance on parking standards.

A design and access statement should be submitted as part of the planning application, including an analysis of the local context.

Technical Information in relation to access and services is available on request. The information provided is advisory only and prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries on these matters.

Leeds City Council is committed to working with applicants at the pre-application stage of planning proposals and actively encourages pre-application discussions for all types of development. Further details are available on the Council's website at http://www.leeds.gov.uk/council/Pages/Pre-application-enquiries.aspx . Please note that there is a fee.

Prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the requirements of the Planning Authority and make their own enquiries as to the suitability of the site for their purposes.
The site is currently accessed from Stanks Gardens and Swarcliffe Avenue, which are both adopted highways.
