Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) and Side Roads Order (SRO) in connection with proposals for the East Leeds Orbital Road (ELOR)

Following the making of the Leeds City Council (East Leeds Orbital Road) Compulsory Purchase Order 2018 and the Leeds City Council (A6120 (East Leeds Orbital Road) Classified Road) Side Roads and Other Works Order 2018, objections were received and the Council's Statement of Case served relating to both Orders.

A copy of the Council’s Statement of Case, which was served by the Council on all objectors as well as the Secretary of State for Transport, may be accessed on this page.

A Public Inquiry in connection with the Orders mentioned above began at 10.00am on Tuesday 12 February 2019 at Leeds Town Hall, The Headrow, Leeds LS1 3AD to hear representations from remaining objectors and statutory objectors, as well as from any other persons having an interest in the land subject of the Compulsory Purchase Order. The inquiry closed on Friday 15 February 2019 and a decision is now awaited from the Department for Transport.

For information a copy of the ELOR CPO and SRO Public Inquiry Notice is available to view:

Copies of the above-mentioned Orders and of the plans referred to therein, proofs of evidence by the promoting authority, Leeds City Council, and the core documents referred to or submitted as evidence at the Public Inquiry which may be accessed on this page.

The CPO has been made to secure the necessary land and new rights required to enable the ELOR to be constructed and maintained. The SRO is required to enable the Council to make the necessary alterations to side roads and other highways impacted upon by the ELOR, the stopping up and improvement of highways, the construction of new highways, the stopping up of private means of access to premises, the provision of new means of access to premises and other associated works, including alterations to public rights of way.

The ELOR is integral to the Council’s proposals to bring forward housing development in a major urban extension of the city known as the East Leeds Extension (ELE), which is an important part of the Council’s regeneration and housing growth proposals for Leeds. The ELE is a 232 hectare site which will deliver much needed housing for the city (up to 5,000 new homes).
