Developers looking to expand a retail centre in south Leeds have been asked to talk to local authorities in neighbouring Bradford, Wakefield and Kirklees about the possible impact of their plans.

Land Securities and The Evans Property Group announced last month that they want to add a multi-screen cinema, restaurants and cafes, and some new shops to the White Rose Centre in Morley, south Leeds, as well as expand the existing Debenhams and Primark stores there.

Councillors on Leeds City Council’s new strategic plans panel get their first chance to comment on the plans for the out-of-town centre at a meeting next week.
