The Dockside at Leeds Dock - 20/02668/FU
20/02668/FU | Construction of bar/restaurant (use classes A3/A4) and associated works | Land Adjacent To Block F, Leeds Dock, Hunslet, Leeds LS10 1LU
I have submitted the following comment to the above application which is of importance to local constituents:
The proposed bar would add an important amenity to the area in line with the vision of what was proposed for the original Clarence Dock redevelopment, as a mixed use area. In this regard, I welcome the proposal. However, I do have concerns which should be addressed to make the application acceptable. I do not believe any of these are insurmountable with the application of good design
: I’m pleased the applicant has now agreed to restrict the hours of alcohol sale and external site use as set out in their separate premise license application – which at the time of writing this comment, has still not yet been determined. However, I have the following concerns about the building itself, stated below:
The use of shipping containers poses a significant risk of noise transfer. Officers will need to very carefully look at what materials will be used to line these. Absorbing internal noise to prevent transference to the external environment will be vital to protect the amenity of the large surrounding residential population- particular on an evening.
This will also need to include any plant used to maintain the bar, which may impact on the external appearance of the building itself.
Thought will be needed on how to reduce possible noise issues caused by the external metal staircase.
: The plans as shown, so far do no appear fully accessible. The top floor is not accessible to those with physical disabilities as shown so far. Officer will need to work with the applicant at address this, as a new build should be accessible by default
A61(s) Bus Priority Corridor - Changes to Leathley Road, Sayner Road and Chadwick Street
Improving the bus network and developing park and ride sites, is an important part of their plans. Giving buses priority along key routes will make journeys quicker, easier and more appealing, helping to tackle congestion, air quality and health issues.
Connecting Leeds will be writing to residents and businesses to advise that over the coming weeks works will commence to facilitate the closures of Sayner Road and Chadwick Street (at their junctions with the A61 Hunslet Road) and the removal of right turn movements from the outbound A61 Hunslet Road into Leathley Road.
These changes will help to reduce delays experienced by all traffic, including buses, along the A61 Hunslet Road.
For Sayner Road and Chadwick Street traffic alternative routes are available via South Accommodation Road, Clarence Road and Carlisle Road. For Leathley Road traffic an alternative route has been introduced by a new u-turn facility at Brookfield Street. Diversion drawings are shown below.
Temporary closure of the dedicated right turn from the outbound A61 Hunslet Road into Leathley Road from 29 June for 2 weeks.
Temporary closure of the dedicated right turn from Leathley Road into the A61 Hunslet Road from 6 July for 2 weeks.
Permanent closure of the dedicated right turn from the outbound A61 Hunslet Road into Leathley Road from 27 June.
Permanent closure of the dedicated right turn from the inbound A61 Hunslet Road into Sayner Road from 12 July.
Permanent closure of Sayner Road at the junction with the A61 Hunslet Road from 25 September.
