Armley: Former HSBC bank could become a cafe

The former HSBC bank in Armley could be transformed into a cafe, if Leeds City Council approves a new planning application for the site.

Applicant Mr Soheil Kahani wants to breathe new life into the building, at the junction of Stocks hill and Crab Lane, by turning it into a cafe, with a new extraction flue and aluminium shop frontage.

The building has been empty after HSBC closed its branch there some years ago.

A design statement accompanying the application added:

“Every effort has been made in this proposal to meet the planning policies of the council. It is of upmost importance for developments to match and complement the existing properties in the area.”

The statement adds that there are ample parking spaces nearby and that the bins would be stored in the basement. The proposed opening times of the library are 11am to 11pm seven days a week.

The plans can be viewed in full here.

WLD recently featured a council report detailing how the Coronavirus pandemic had affected trade in the Town Street area.
