Former Walkabout to Be Developed into Student Accommodation

Posted by Richard Ward in

The £10m development of student housing on the site of a former bar located on Cookridge Street in Leeds has been recommended for conditional approval.

Indigo Planning on behalf of X & X Estates is looking for permission to develop the site of the former Walkabout.

When the current property is demolished a building comprising of six to eight storeys has been proposed and will include 96 studio apartments.

It's anticipated that the redevelopment of the site will enhance the character of the area and the setting of listed buildings.

The current plans have been described as acceptable for occupiers, whilst expectations are that the impact it will have on traffic could be effectively managed.
