Welcome to South Bank Leeds website. We have ambitious plans to double the size of Leeds city centre to create 35,000 new jobs and over 8,000 new homes.

We have published a draft strategy for the future of the area which is available to download. Explore the website to find out more about one of Europe's largest regeneration projects.



What Next For Leeds 2023?

The recent decision by the European Commission to cancel the UK competition for European Capital of Culture will not prevent us from the journey we started four years ago. It simply signals the end of the beginning. 

Leeds Town Hall will host a public meeting on Wednesday 31st of January to inform Leeds of the next chapter for the city and share details of how the whole city can continue to be part of what has been an incredible story so far.

Last week, Councillors agreed a positive first step in continuing to build upon the strong and meaningful momentum generated from the bid.

We look forward to continuing our journey with you as we share and commit to the ambitions set out in the city’s new Culture Strategy.

The event will run from 4:00-6:00pm and to attend you will need to register at the below link.
