Public consultation on next phase of Aire Park masterplan

 Vastint UK, the developer behind Aire Park, the mixed-use development on the former Tetley’s brewery site in Hunslet, is hosting a drop-in consultation on the final phase of the scheme’s masterplan.

The session, which will take place at The Tetley on Hunslet Road from 3-7pm on Wednesday 27 March 2024 will offer interested parties the first opportunity to find out more about the ambitious second phase of the masterplan which will continue Aire Park’s evolution.

The new plans will include the completion of the expansive 8-acre city park and drastically improve connectivity between the city centre of Leeds, its South Bank and Leeds Dock.

Plans will show the potential layout of the extension to the public park, up to 502 high-quality homes, further commercial and leisure spaces and a multi-storey car park.

The event is part of Vastint UK’s commitment to working with local stakeholders to shape the future of Aire Park. Attendees will be able to speak to members of Vastint’s planning team, as well as representatives from the architects and planning consultants.

The consultation follows the opening of the first pieces of the site’s public realm and Vastint UK’s recently revealed proposal for the refurbishment of the Tetley building.

On this next phase of the masterplan Simon Schofield, Head of Development at Vastint UK, said:

“We’re excited to be progressing with the next phase of the Aire Park masterplan and as a long-term investor into Leeds, we believe it’s important that we engage in a conversation with our neighbours about the future direction of this once in a generation redevelopment.

“The submission of planning for phase two of the masterplan will be another major milestone for us, and we welcome any feedback on our plans as we look to create a new district for residents, workers and visitors to Leeds to enjoy.”

The consultation event is just one way interested parties can have their say on the current plans. Those unable to make the session can find out more information about the plans at, which will be available to view from 27 March.  Provide feedback on the plans via email to or freepost to: Freepost Vastint UK.

The deadline for comments is Wednesday 10 April 2024.
