LEEDS – PBA has helped secure provisional approval for plans to redevelop the historic former Tetley Brewery South Bank site in Leeds.
The former Tetley Brewery land was acquired by Vastint UK who appointed PBA to carry out technical due diligence, transport planning and ecology for the development.
The application, one of the biggest the city centre has seen, includes 850 homes, offices, and commercial space, and possibly two hotels. The proposals centre around a new park which will form the centre piece of the development and create a large green space in the city.
Due to its location, the transport aspects of the masterplan development were critical. PBA successfully negotiated low on-site parking provision and concentrated on public transport, park&ride and pedestrian and cycling connections, supported by comprehensive travel planning.
Henk Gelens, PBA Director, commented:
“This will be an exciting redevelopment for Leeds. The South Bank is one of the most significant regeneration opportunities in Europe and PBA are proud to be playing a part in it. Now the plans have been provisionally approved we are looking forward to moving the development on to the next stage.”
PBA has recently opened a new office in Leeds to build on our existing northern presence. The office opening will be marked with a launch event at the Tetley on Thursday 9 November.
