Tesco has confirmed that in the next few months it will be consulting on proposals for a new supermarket and other community facilities in Kirkstall.
The proposals could include a Tesco store, community buildings, new shops and a public square. This investment would regenerate the currently derelict land at the junction of Kirkstall Lane and Commercial Road, creating hundreds of local jobs.
Deborah Hayeems, Tesco Corporate Affairs Manager, said: “We are excited to be bringing forward proposals for a new Tesco store and other community facilities on this important site in Kirkstall.
“Over the next few months we will be developing our plans in consultation with local residents, businesses and community groups. We want to maximise the benefits of this investment in Kirkstall, creating new facilities and jobs for the area that would provide a major boost to the local economy.”
Consultation on the plans will begin in March before a planning application is submitted later in the year.
