Apartment plan for Armley shop


By John Baron

A shop on Armley Town Street could be partially converted into an apartment if plans are given the go ahead.

Applicant Mr Mohammed wants to subdivide the existing ground floor shop to create a flat on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are plans for an extension to create two two-bedroom flats from the current one-bed flat on the first floor.

A planning statement accompanying the application states: “The shop has been struggling over past years to maintain a steady profit and keep locals coming in. This would provide additional accommodation, reduce shop costs as currently most the shop is empty internally due to its large size.

“We believe this would prolong the commercial viability of this property and prevent this building from falling into dilapidation, as if this does not get approved my client is thinking of closing the shop.”

The plans can be viewed in full here.
