Council makes decision on planned new homes for Saffron Lane, Leicester

By Elliot Leadbetter

On Tuesday night the Planning and Development Control Committee made a unanimous recommendation for approval to turn the former St. Mary’s allotment site on Saffron Lane, Leicester, into 125 dwellings.

The applicant for the development, Westleigh Partnerships Ltd, plans to turn the site into a range of predominantly small houses, consisting of 2 x 1 bed, 59 x 2 bed, 45 x 3 bed, 7 x 4 bed and 12 x 1 bed flats with associated infrastructure including access, drainage and pedestrian link to Aylestone Road.

Councillor Jean Khote said: “I think the houses look beautiful and I welcome them.”

Leicester City Council emphasised that the planned development would provide much needed residential accommodation in the area and the vote was in undisputed favour of the plans.
