A public meeting held to discuss the proposal by Miller Homes to build a 47 house development, off King Street in Drighlington, attracted over 170 people.
The meeting, organised by Drighlington Parish Council, also heard that over 400 objections have been submitted to Leeds City Council’s planning department against the plan.
Miller Homes has submitted a plan to demolish a building owned by Moorside Building Supplies and build the development, which will consist of houses and flats just off King Street.
The planning application proposes two and three storey detached, townhouse and semi-detached houses, including affordable housing as well as flats. A public consultation will be held before a full planning application is submitted to Leeds City Council.
The plan can be viewed at Drighlington Community Library on Moorland Road and the deadline for people to submit their views to the council is tomorrow, Thursday May 29.
