Bramley: Decision made on Sunday school conversion


A former Sunday school in Bramley could be converted into four terrace houses.

Applicant Mr J Bennet of Meanwood Road wants to transform the empty Old Schoolroom in Westover Road into four three-bedroomed houses. The back of the building will be demolished.

The building will be re-clad in red brick and a first floor added.

There had been concern from a neighbour and Bramley and Stanningley ward councillors about the impact on parking in the area, so the developer revised his plans to omit the third bedroom for each dwelling, reducing the parking requirement from eight to four, plus one visitor space.

A report by council planning officers concluded:

“The proposal is considered to have no significant detrimental impact on visual or neighbouring residential amenity or highways safety.”

Plans for five houses on the site were withdrawn by the same applicant in April following concerns.

The proposals can be read here.

Meanwhile, an application to change a vacant basement unit at St Catherine’s Mill in Broad Lane into a fitness studio has also been approved by the council.
