Plan for new homes in Tingley given go-ahead
A PLANNING application that will see a further housing development being built in Tingley has been approved.
Planning chiefs have given the green light to Stonebridge Homes Ltd and The Diocese of Leeds to demolish the Church of Nativity on Westerton Close and build the 14 houses along with accompanying access road, garages and 28 car spaces.
The proposed development means the church building will have to be demolished to make way for the detached and semi-detached two, three and four bedroom homes.
The new-build comes shortly after Leeds City Council granted permission for 12 houses to be built just around the corner at Waterwood Close.
The Westerton Road application sparked concern amongst local residents who feared the extra houses will mean an increase of traffic and children would find it hard to be placed in local schools.
But the planning department approved the application last week saying it had taken all material planning considerations, including comments made by the public, and believed the development would not “give rise to any unacceptable consequences for the environment, community or other public interest of acknowledged importance.”
The planner says that the houses will be two- storey, to match existing neighbouring housing, with each garage being single storey.
