Leeds Bradford Airport & North West Leeds Employment Hub
In December 2018 LBA secured planning consent for a three-storey terminal extension, and this is being viewed in tandem with a number of other developments in and around the airport, including a new employment hub, parkway station and link road.
The North West Leeds Employment Hub allocation was adopted within the Site Allocation Plan in July 2019, with 36 hectares being allocated for employment growth. Uses will include Research & Development, Light Industrial, General Industrial and Storage & Distribution. The allocation responds to the deficit of employment land in Outer North West Leeds that is fit for purpose for modern business needs.
Work is still being undertaken on the parkway station and link road in an attempt to combine economic growth to the results of public engagement and the Council’s climate emergency declaration. Work also continues on the proposed development of a new parkway station on the Leeds-Harrogate railway line.
