Leeds yesterday heard of plans to build one of Europe's largest housing and business parks on more than 200 acres of green belt land. Developers revealed a pounds 200m scheme to build 1,000 houses and business units linked to the new A1 and M1 extensions.

A public inquiry into the new road link is due to begin in January. Protests are likely at the loss of green belt. The East Leeds Development Company said that its proposals would lead to the creation of 7,500 new jobs.
