A former library in Farnley could become a tattoo parlour, if plans submitted to Leeds City Council are approved.

Ther former Cow CLose Library closed in 2012 as a result of council cutbacks. The library was replaced by a mobile library.

Until last summer it was run by Armley Juniors Project for Young People as Cow Close Community Corner, which provided a daily work club and access to IT equipment.

Applicant Mr Broadhead. of Whincover Road, Farnley wants to change the use of the building and open a tattoo shop from Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm, Saturday 9am to 5pm, and Sunday 10am-4pm. It would employ one full-time and two part-time employees.

The plans can be viewed in full here.

While you’re here…

Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!

There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.

We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.

And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.

To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!

And we need YOUR help to continue …

For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).

As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.

Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.

Supporting us couldn’t be easier…

Over to you …
