Leeds City College is proposing to build a new college campus at Mabgate, which will deliver high quality facilities, office space for staff, and residential properties on a site which has been underutilised for some time. This project will regenerate the site and the wider Mabgate area, acting as a catalyst for further investment in this part of Leeds.

Leeds City College, part of the Luminate Education Group, is delivering this project despite the challenges of the COVID-19 impact on the economy because we are committed to improving access to further and higher education options for young people in Leeds. This is against a backdrop of an unprecedented demand for Leeds City College’s services. An outline planning application has been submitted to Leeds City Council, which will establish the principle of redeveloping this site for a new college campus.

We have launched this website to keep you updated on the project and to give you the opportunity to have your say and shape the detailed plans that come forward. Please choose an option below to find out more and have your say.
