Additional staff and ambulance parking at Bramley Ambulance Station has been approved by council planners.
The proposals, by West Yorkshire Ambulance Service, will help solve parking problems at the Stanningley Road site, which has 50 staff working there but only enough parking space for 30.
Grassed areas on site are to be removed to increase the number of emergency ambulance bays from two to 12, and increase the number of personnel bays from 30 to 52.
The existing fuel tank and bay would be relocated, and new lighting and electric car charging points would be installed.
A planning statement accompanying the application stated:
“In addition to this, the entire site needs to be redone to remove potholes and ripples that damage emergency vehicles. Finally, the site will integrate the infrastructure for future electric car charging facilities for emergency and personnel vehicles.
“The proposed development will provide sufficient parking spaces for staff to address current parking issues at the site, creating a safer and smoother parking area and working environment for staff.”
Bramley Ambulance Station is based on Railsford Rise on the corner of Stanningley Road.
