Planning permission granted for this new infrastructure project

We’re thrilled to announce that the new White Rose Railway station in south Leeds has received planning permission.

The new infrastructure will improve connectivity in the area and provide new opportunities for local communities by encouraging investment and creating new jobs.

To support sustainability goals, the development includes improvements to cycle and footpaths, as well as enhancements to the landscaping to attract a greater diversity of wildlife. The proposed green roof to the station will encourage further biodiversity. 

The project is a partnership between our client and owner of the White Rose Office Park, David Aspin, with Network Rail, Leeds City Council and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

David Aspin, owner of Munroe K, said:

“We are delighted that planning permission has been granted to build the railway station that will undoubtedly improve the transport connections both within south Leeds and the wider city.”

“Our partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Leeds City Council and Network Rail has helped to make this proposal become reality. It is a testament to how collaboration can help to make significant progress in providing better connectivity in Leeds and the North.”

The scheme is due to open in 2022.
