Green light for demolition of vandalised Bramley toilets

The former public toilets next to Bramley Shopping Centre will be demolished and the site put up for sale on the open market after planning permission was approved.

Leeds City Council had applied to demolish the former public conveniences near Bramley interchange, which were closed years ago due to anti-social behaviour and vandalism.

In the application, the council said the building has been declared surplus to requirements and the Land and Property department does not believe best value for
the site would be gained by having the building in situ and aim to market the land for sale.

The cash-strapped council is facing £87 million of budget cuts and is axing hundreds of jobs, due mainly to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Approving the proposals, a council planning officer said in a report:

“The metal structure has no architectural merit and the loss is not considered to be significantly detrimental to the character of this locality.”
