Preston Baker New Homes Land and Planning is delighted to present you with a prime site close to Leeds city centre which offers good prospects of gaining planning approval for residential development.

The half-acre site at Kotia House, Roseville Road, LS8 5DT, currently has 16,000 square feet of vacant commercial unit with vacant land to the rear.

A scheme has been drawn up for 76 one and two-bedroom apartments by Den Architecture and a planning review has been undertaken by Preston Baker’s Head of Town Planning Rob Crolla which concludes this site has good prospects for winning planning approval for residential development.

A scheme for a seven-storey residential development with underground parking plus landscaping has recently won outline planning permission for 89 one to three-bedroom apartments at a nearby site in Dolly Lane, Leeds, LS9 – a good indicator of planning success for the Kotia House site.

The Kotia House site is located on Roseville Road, to the north east of Leeds city centre, close to St. James’s University Hospital. This is a prime site, with easy access to Leeds and the rest of the country via the city’s excellent transport links.

Leeds, the undisputed leader of the Northern Powerhouse, is the largest centre outside London for financial and business services. In 2021 this thriving city was crowned the best city to live and work in the North of England, and was also named the best city for parks and playgrounds in 2020.

Served by five universities, Leeds has the UK’s fourth-largest student population. The city is home to a number of leading companies, including William Hill, Channel 4, Asda, Aviva, Direct Line and BT Group, as well as a large Department for Work and Pensions office building located in Quarry Hill.
