The Challenge

The site was previously occupied by railway lines and buildings associated with the railway and is located adjacent to the main network railway line and River Aire and sits next to the main foul trunk sewer for the east of Leeds. 

Our Solution

We undertook detailed conversations and negotiations with Yorkshire Water on local incursions into the easement, along with discussions on easement future protection to achieve planning.
