Transport

Transport improvements in the East Leeds Extension

As shown on the indicative plan here, East Leeds Extension development includes a number of transport and infrastructure improvements including:

  • A new dual carriageway called the East Leeds Orbital Road or ‘ELOR’. This will stretch from the outer ring road at Red Hall round the east side of Leeds to Thorpe Park where it will join a new Manston Lane Link Road (MLLR), connecting to the existing highway infrastructure and M1 motorway.
  • Improvements to the outer ring road (A6120) between Red Hall and the M1 to make it easier to use for pedestrians, cyclists and local traffic. These will include changes to junctions, speed limits and crossing facilities.
  • Improvements to outer ring road junctions to the west to ensure better traffic flows.

Middle and Southern Quadrants Development Framework

To help ensure that development comes forward in a coordinated way for the section of the East Leeds Extension between the A64 and the Leeds-York-Selby railway line, known as the Middle and Southern Quadrants, Leeds City Council is in the process of preparing a Development Framework.

This framework will:

  • set out a clear vision for the development of new homes, community facilities and infrastructure across the area
  • provide guidance for developers on how they will be expected to contribute to the costs of delivering the new orbital road
  • set out a programme for the delivery of the new road and housing
  • set planning applications should be coordinated to ensure the delivery of key community facilities.

We are now seeking your views to help prepare this document and the main issues it should address. A draft of the document will be consulted on in spring 2016.

10. In considering future development of this area, on a scale of 1 to 5, (with 5 being very important and 1 not important at all), how would you rate the importance of the following issues in this part of the East Leeds Extension?

Please select one option only in each row.

  • Access to the countryside and public rights of way 1 Not Important at All –> 5 Very Important

Red Hall Planning Brief

A key element of the East Leeds Extension is the relocation of the council’s 29-acre horticultural nursery and the sale of the vacated Red Hall site. The new nursery site is to be provided at Whinmoor Grange. The relocation of these facilities is needed to allow for the new orbital road to connect from the outer ring road at Red Hall to the A58.

The council has prepared a draft planning brief for land at Red Hall which is allocated for development in the Leeds Local Development Framework (LDF) here.

We are now seeking your views to help shape this document and the main issues it should address. A copy of the Red Hall Planning brief can be found here.
