Green light for £600m Eastgate scheme in Leeds

Developer Hammerson has received planning consent for its revised £600m Eastgate Quarters retail scheme in Leeds.

Plans for the site next to the Victorian Quarter have been approved by the city council.

Designed by ACME, the scheme will comprise 130 new shops and restaurants and also include a new civic square and street pedestrianisation.

Construction on Eastgate Quarters was due to start in 2009 but borrowing and retail trade fears meant work has been delayed.
