Scaled-back plans too transform the former Farsley Liberal Club into five apartments have been submitted to the council for approval.

Last October council planners approved proposals for six apartments on the site, but following specialist structural advice, the plans have now been amended.

Stephen Adler, from Stephen Adler Planning, wrote in a letter accompanying the new application: “Following specialist structural advice, the rear basement area, lightwell and replacement extension are not to be progressed such that this reduced scheme for five apartments is less intensive.

“It still protects the contribution that the building makes to the character and appearance of this part of the Farsley Conservation Area.”

The proposals also include new and replacement windows and doors, new rear balconies, demolition of an existing extension and new hard and soft landscaping.

The club, based in the centre of Farsley, closed in 2022 after 134 years. It had been struggling financially for several years.

As first reported by WLD, the club, in Old Road, called time in August 2022 and now sits empty.

Farsley Liberal Club is a Victorian building, built in 1899.

  1. I’m amazed how this development is being allowed without any parking provision or electric vehicle charging points, yet similar sized ones get rejected for having none. The on street parking in this location is inadequate as it is, I’m guessing someone on the planning committe has an interest in this property?
