Gold & Amber and Rushbond plan scheme for site near old Marsh Lane Railway in Leeds 

Developers Gold & Amber and Rushbond have secured permission to build an 1012-home scheme of five towers in Leeds. 

Leeds City Council gave the developer permission on 18 March for the scheme to be built on the former Goods Yard in Shannon Street. The homes would be built across five blocks ranging in height from 12 to 22 stepped storeys.

The scheme would be built on brownfield land and is part of the wider regeneration of the eastern part of Leeds city. The plans approved on the 18 March were for 50% one-bedroomed homes, 42% two-bedroomed and 8% three bedroomed. The pre-application on Tuesday suggested 48% one-bedroom, 44% two-bedroom and 7.5% 3-bedroom homes.

The plans, designed by Leeds-based Brewster Bye Architects, include commercial space. 

On 6 October the required section 2016 legal agreement for the scheme was signed.
