Cliff House: Housing plans withdrawn by developer

New plans to build houses in the grounds of historic Cliff House in Wortley have today been withdrawn by developers – less than a month after they were first submitted.

Priestley Homes already has planning permission to restore arson-hit Cliff House into apartments and a further £3 million development of seven homes immediately next to the Grade II Listed building off Fawcett Lane.

But this week it withdrew further proposals to demolish run-down Cliff Cottage and build six new townhouses next to the existing barn. Also included would be a new access road, parking and landscaping.

The proposals drew two objections from local residents.

Cliff Cottage was formerly the residence of the groundskeeper and caretaker of Western Flatts Park.

Grade II Listed Cliff House saw much of its internal structure destroyed during an arson attack in 2017. Plans to create an additional apartment in the roof space, with an extension to the rear were approved by Leeds City Council in July.
