Self storage depot could be built off Leeds Road if newly revealed plans approved

A self storage depot could be built just off Leeds Road if newly revealed plans are approved.

Buildings next to a fenced off area on the street would be demolished to make way for the development, which has been submitted by a Mr Shahid.

The application says the buildings are “in a state of disrepair” and the rest of the site was fenced off due to people using the site to sell drugs and dump stolen cars.

It adds: “The site will provide much needed storage space for customers within this commercial area.

“Local businesses in the vicinity are also looking for additional storage space which they do not have in their existing buildings.

“The area is currently very run down and the applicant is having a lot of issues with drunk individuals and drug users who are leaving litter and needles around the building.

“He is looking at lifting the whole area by bringing the site back into use to help regenerate the area.”

The site will include CCTV cameras and 24 hour security.

A decision on the application is expected next month.
