A Farsley street which houses cafe bars WILL be pedestrianised to provide a permanent outdoor seating area outside the eateries and softplay area at Sunny Bank Mills.

Leeds City Council approved the plans to alter the car park, add an external seating area and pave Paradise Street, off Farsley Town Street.

As reported by the Dispatch last month, the street will be pedestrianised with reclaimed Yorkstone paving, with the seated areas featuring stone resin.

There had been some local concerns about access to the parking area.

A planning statement submitted by the developers said:

“Pedestrian priority on Paradise Street will enhance the existing businesses and complement the established thriving town centre, ensuring a competitive market and widening customer choice.

“The employment opportunities it generates will also encourage prosperity and sustainable economic growth for Farsley and the wider community.”
