Demolition of former Pudsey school moves step closer

The demolition of a former high school building in West Leeds has moved a step closer after a planning application was submitted to Leeds City Council.

Hough Side High School closed in August 1992 and Leeds City Council has earmarked the site for around 76 houses in its Site Allocations planning blueprint for Outer West Leeds.

The building has had a variety of uses, and WLD reported in November 2019 that most council workers had moved out of the building, also known as Hough Top Court, and work to demolish the building was ‘able to take place soon’. 

Demolition had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. A council spokesperson said last year that preliminary demolition surveys at Hough Side School had begun on site.

A planning application to demolish the building has now been submitted and can be viewed here.

A planning application for houses on the Hough Top site is yet to be submitted.

An exact date will be set for demolition work should planning permission be granted.
