New plans to demolish Pudsey pub for housing

14 August 2019

Fresh plans to demolish a 19th century Pudsey pub have been submitted – just two months after previous proposals were refused.

The Boar’s Head, on Roker Lane, has stood empty since 2003 and new plans could see the building make way for two three-bedroom semi-detached houses.

Initial proposals for a small terrace of three two-bedroom homes were refused by Leeds City Council in June for being ‘overly dominant’.

The Boar’s Head is one of four pubs on about 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 last October.

The planning application can be viewed in full here.
