Globe Road to host music festival as planning decision looms

CEG’s development in Holbeck looks set to move forward as their plans go to the Council’s City Plans Panel on Thursday (19 April 2018).

Meanwhile the site will host the World Island music festival over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (25-27 May 2018) featuring top names including Sampha and Loyle Carner.

As previously reported, CEG has submitted a hybrid planning application for the site which includes land between Globe Road and the Hol Beck as well as the former Knight & Foster printworks on the corner of Water Lane and Bath Road.

They are seeking full planning permission for the first two buildings on the corner site where Water Lane meets Globe Road. They then seek outline permission for the phased development of the rest of the site to include, business, residential, retail, leisure, health and community use, plus a multi-storey car park.

They have set out principles for the future phases as well as for the public realm which will add pedestrian crossings of Hol Beck, Water Lane and Globe Road as well as road narrowing and making Water Lane one-way between Globe Road and Bath Road.
