Leeds Property Forum

Leeds Property Forum

Tuesday 19 March (7:00 pm)

Squire Patton Boggs, Leeds

The next Leeds Property Forum will hear about plans to develop new road and rail links to Yorkshire’s airport.

We hear from our members that this is really important if the airport is to attract more business travellers and this is your opportunity to contribute to the consultation which will be launched in the next two months. Andrew Hall from Leeds City Council will present plans for new road and rail connectivity to the airport.

Leeds Business Improvement District will be seeking to ballot for a second term to commence in 2020. Andrew Cooper, CEO of Leeds BID will be addressing members of the Leeds Property Forum at this event and will run through the first term’s achievements and what we can expect from 2020. This will be a great opportunity to hear directly from one of the country’s largest BIDs about how it will benefit the Leeds economy.

Over the last 12 months the Property Forum Housing and Planning Groups have been working with Leeds City Council to develop a new protocol which sets out what developers can expect from the statutory planning process in Leeds. The protocol also sets out what is expected of developers in return. The protocol has been put together through extensive collaboration between planning officers, plans panel members and the development community including some of the region’s largest and smallest companies. The launch of the Leeds Planning Protocol is aimed to ease the uncertainty and help developers bring new schemes to market as efficiently and pain free as possible. Hear from Leeds City Council’s Chief Planning Officer, Tim Hill, and also from David Rolinson, Chair of the Chamber Housing Group as they share news of this exciting new initiative.
