Leeds City Council has approved plans for a new railway station at Kirkstall Forge.
The proposals for the new station, which form part of Commercial Estates Group's wider scheme to transform the 56-acre former industrial site into a thriving mixed-use community, were unanimously supported by the planning committee.
CEG's masterplan for Kirkstall Forge includes 1,045 homes and 300,000 sq ft of commercial office space as well as retail and leisure facilities. The company has provided £4 million towards the delivery of the station which will not only serve the new Forge development but also the wider area including Kirkstall, south Horsforth and Bramley Falls areas of the city.
