Keyland Developments Ltd Has Submitted an Outline of Planning Application


Keyland Developments Ltd is the property training section of Kelda Group and its sister-company Yorkshire Water. The Development company has submitted an outline of planning application in order to regenerate the vacant 16 acre site that is in an ideal location in the Aire Valley of Leeds. The planning application has been submitted to Leeds City Council and the plans detail the creation of a 265,000 sq. ft. mixed-employment development that could have the see 500 new jobs created.

The potential site to be developed by Keyland Developments Ltd is located just off Pontefract Lane on the trunk lane of the A63. The development site will be located between the Cross Green Industrial Estate and Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone. In this location there has been a range of new developments taking place. The location for the development will allow the inhabitants easy access via the M62 to Leeds City Centre.

The proposal set out by Keyland is to create a brand new employment hub which can have access to the A63 East Leeds Link Road to Thornes Farm Roundabout. This new plan for development will hopefully complement the regeneration of the area that will assist the Leeds City Council as the try to increase their employment opportunities.

The 265,000 sq. ft. B1,B2 and B8 industrial and commercial warehouse space on the plans have been allocated into 8 different units. If the plans are approved and the work goes ahead, the units will measure between 20,000 and 60,000 sq. ft. in order to reflect the space that is in demand in the market. The plans for the completed construction work is to make sure that the units and their inhabitants will have the best possible exposure to the A63. This key access will no doubt be a key selling point of the development when it is completed.
