A disused Wortley car sales pitch will become an ice cream café, after Leeds City Council planners approved the proposals.

Applicant Dewsbury-based food company Rubik’s Grey wants to change the use of the building and yard at Five Lane Ends to an ice cream/desserts café.

The new café would open from 12pm to 8pm each day and employ three full-time and four part-time staff, with seating for 22 people.

The car park area will remain the same – with an entrance and exit at each end of the site. There will be parking for 12 cars.

There were two letters of objection surrounding noise and road safety at a busy junction. Council highways officers had no road safety concern, but planners reduced the proposed closing time from 10pm to 8pm daily.

Applicant Rubik’s Grey said in a statement accompanying the application:

“Externally the building will not see any changes through this particular development, apart from display boards at high level.”
