Hundreds more students will be heading to Horsforth as part of a new university’s plans to increase its numbers.

Leeds Trinity University, which is based in the town, wants to increase student numbers from 3,250 to 4,000 over the next ten years.

And it has told residents the influx will mean more developments on its campus.

Leeds Trinity, which was granted university status in 2012, has held a meeting with local people to discuss its future plans. The meeting was described as the first of many about community collaboration and developments on campus.
