A former caretaker’s house will become new office and meeting space for Stanningley Primary School.
Council planners this week approved the proposals at the school, off Leeds and Bradford Road, which also include extra car parking.
A planning statement accompanying the application states: “The school currently has limited office and meeting facilities on site which the change of use to the property would offer.
“The proposed scheme also seeks to reduce congestion on local streets which staff are having to park on.”
A council planning officer’s report approving the plans concluded: “It is considered that the development complies with the aims and intentions of all relevant policies and will not cause harm to visual amenity, nor residential amenity and highway safety.”
The application – which was approved subject to planning conditions including work starting within three years – can be viewed in full here.
