Land off Moseley Wood Gardens, Cookridge

Moseley Wood Gardens - Cookridge - Leeds - West Yorkshire - LS16 7HZ

Our Reserved Matters application for 135 dwellings has been approved by Leeds City Council on 23rd May 2016.


  • Overview

    Our proposals for 135 new homes and open space with one point of access off Moseley Wood Rise

    The land at Moseley Wood Gardens, Cookridge was granted Outline Planning Permission (14/04270/OT) by Leeds City Council on 1 April 2015. The permission was for 135 houses with a vehicular access off Moseley Wood Rise and a pedestrian/cycle route on to Cookridge Drive. Taylor Wimpey has now received Reserved Matters Approval from Leeds City Council on 23rd May 2016 (15/04884/RM).

    What are Reserved Matters?

    The Outline Permission established the principle of developing the site and in order to begin construction, Taylor Wimpey is therefore required to submit details of the site layout, appearance, scale and landscaping for the development to Leeds City Council.
