I am a resident in the local area. How will it affect me?

Demolition and building work

During the works, vehicles will arrive on-site and there may be some noise during the day for limited periods. We will try to limit this as much as possible.

Transport and parking

The laboratory will be near an existing car park at the St James's site, so parking arrangements for staff will be the same as for others who work at the hospital.

We are looking at a range of options to promote alternative ways of travelling to the site, helping us to meet Leeds City Council strategies on the environment and reducing car travel.

When will building work start and finish?

Building completion is planned for the end of summer 2023 with pathology services then transferring throughout 2023 and 2024, becoming fully operational following the installation of new, high-tech equipment.
