Keyland primes five Leeds city region sites

The sister company to Yorkshire Water said that across 97.3 acres, it can deliver 560 homes and 1.1m sq ft of employment space within the Leeds Local Plan.

The identified sites for development are Dunningley Lane in Tingley, Astley Lane in Swillington, Moor Road in Bramhope, Shadwell Grange in Roundhay and Hough Side Road in Pudsey.

Keyland, which is the property trading arm of Kelda Group, believes that 5,680 jobs and a £225m GVA boost could result from the sites’ development as part of the Leeds Local Plan 2040.

Keyland said that the proposal it has submitted to encourage these sites’ allocation within the Local Plan will strive to deliver significant benefits to support the council’s priorities.

The figures arrived at by Keyland come through the firm’s valuation tool, which calculates the value each site adds across six different “capitals” – natural value, relating to biodiversity and energy; social value; human value; intellectual value; manufactured value; and financial value.

Luke Axe, land & planning director at Keyland Developments, said; “The purpose of our Six Capitals Valuation Tool is to deliver added value through creating exceptional developments. Traditional measures of value only take into account a proportion of the total impact of a development.

“Sustainable development is at the heart of everything we do, so we take time to thoughtfully understand, measure and manage the impact of our developments and how they can bring the most benefits and value to the region. The delivery of these five developments will significantly support Leeds City Council’s vision and strategic objectives for the region’s future.”

Keyland is also the firm responsible for the development of Esholt, a scheme of 1.1m sq ft employment space and 150 sustainable homes near Bradford.
