400m blueprint for city quarter
Leeds city centre
The proposals would transform undeveloped parts of the city
A blueprint for a 400m scheme to regenerate an undeveloped part of Leeds city centre is to go under the spotlight.

Leeds City Council's executive board will discuss the key principles of a plan which will transform the Eastgate and Harewood quarter.

The development will include shops, offices, houses and extra parking.

It is hoped the project will attract more businesses to the area especially national chains.

Councillor Andrew Carter, Leeds City executive board member for development, said: "This scheme will provide a boost for the city centre and play a significant part in moving Leeds up a league as a regional centre and internationally competitive city."

Businesses, community groups and residents are working with the council on the scheme including more employment possibilities.
