Housing plan at Farnley Sports and Social Club site

The site of the former Farnley Sports and Social Club WILL be turned into housing, the Dispatch can confirm.

Leeds Council planning officers passed revised plans, subject to a number of conditions, for eight semi-detached homes on the Butt Lane site late last year.

And work has since been ongoing to clear the site of what remained of the former Farnley Sports and Social Club building, which was burnt down in an apparent arson attack last August.

The building had become a repeated target for vandals after the club closed down in late 2014.

The Dispatch understands work is due to begin on building the houses later this year.


  1. This is a nice place to live with the fishpond next to it for a stroll, Farnley park nearby, shops in the village and a good school close by. The houses are far too small, though. With such a nice setting I would have gone for four detached luxury houses, there are too many of these little boxes going up now. They are just starter homes and this site deserves better.
