Green light for Pudsey pub demolition

Fresh plans to demolish a 19th century Pudsey pub have been approved by Leeds City Council’s planning department.

The Boar’s Head, on Roker Lane, has stood empty since 2003 and plans approved this week will see the building make way for two semi-detached houses.

The decision comes despite four objections from nearby residents, who were concerned about road safety. There were also concerns over a loss of privacy.

Initial proposals for a small terrace of three two-bedroom homes were refused by Leeds City Council in June for being ‘overly dominant’. But planning officers say the latest application has overcome those concerns.

The Boar’s Head was one of four pubs on a mile stretch of road that has closed in the past 20 years. The White Cross, the Regent and the Weasel also shut their doors; only the Fleece on Fartown is still in business.

The name of the applicant is simply given as Butterfield on the application form, and the company name ‘Purfleet’.

The Dispatch featured concerns about the future of the Boar’s Head in October 2018.

The planning application and decision can be viewed in full here.
