Leeds City Plans Panel has given the green light to the new large teaching facility in Cloberry Street.

The building will be shared with the School of Law, the School of Languages and Central Teaching Space. 

This is phase three of a multi-million pound project to develop LUBS facilities. These will provide technology-rich, flexible teaching spaces, lecture theatres and trading rooms, further advancing the delivery of world-class teaching solutions.

Phase one of the scheme – the refurbishment of teaching areas in the Charles Thackrah building, with the addition of a new café – has been successfully completed. 

Phase two commenced early this year and includes the construction of the Newlyn Building in Mount Preston Street, adjacent to Bright Beginning Nursery. This will provide additional central teaching space – specifically, four flat-floor teaching rooms, with a capacity for 100 people, and four teaching rooms, each providing capacity for 36 people. 

New computer-generated images of how the latest building will look have also just been unveiled.

Enabling works are currently underway to clear the ground and install new mains services infrastructure prior to building works beginning. The project is planned for completion in autumn 2021.
