Former first floor office space above an empty Pudsey bank building could become a four-bedroom flat, if plans are given the green light.
The former HSBC Bank, at the corner of Church Lane and Robin Lane, has been empty since it closed its doors in October 2020.
The planning application – submitted Mr F Al Fadhili, of Church Court (Morley) Ltd – confirms that separate proposals for a coffee shop below the new flat are still active.
WLD reported last year that multi-national coffeehouse chain Starbucks could move into the building, although it’s unclear whether they are still interested or whether a new operator has been found.
This week’s planning application for the four-bedroom flat above states that the proposals will feature sound-proof flooring and that all habitable rooms will have large windows with adequate natural light. Parking would be in the former bank car park at the rear.
The plans can be viewed in full here.
Council planning chiefs last April issued a ‘certificate of proposed lawful development’ to change the use of the rest of the building building from a bank into a coffee shop.
