A Kirkstall pub garden will be improved after plans submitted to Leeds City Council were approved.

The Vesper Gate, off Abbey Road, had submitted plans for new double doors at the pub and an extension of a timber pergola to cater for people who may wish to drink or dine outside.

The beer garden area will be resurfaced and will have artificial grass.

A planning statement submitted with the application said the proposals were important to help maintain the viability of the pub and added: “The works are a direct response to the recent Covid 19 pandemic / current economy problems and the need to provide improved outdoor seating areas and generally enhance external spaces.

“This is to support the overall viability of the premises and to meet the changing demand of customers, many of whom prefer outdoor spaces.”

The plans can be viewed in full here.
