Wider City

Our ambition for growth and regeneration extends beyond the city centre. Working closely with private sector partners over the next 4 years we will deliver new rail halts to unlock and accelerate developments at a new generation of mixed use employment destinations at Thorpe Park and White Rose, releasing the potential for thousands of new jobs. We will transform surface access to Leeds Bradford Airport and a new employment zone through new rail and road connections.

At Kirkstall Forge a new rail halt has already been delivered alongside new road access infrastructure to open up the development of a pioneering new mixed use neighbourhood; in East Leeds one of the biggest highways schemes in the last 40 years will unlock a major urban extension of 5,000 new homes; and at our Enterprise Zone we are already realising the benefits of major investments in roads, energy generation and site remediation through high profile occupiers taking advantage of an agile development offer and high quality transport connections.
