New Wortley: Former Liberal Club to become St George’s Crypt flats

Plans to transform the site of a demolished liberal club in New Wortley into flats have been approved by Leeds City Council.

St George’s Crypt, which works with the homeless, vulnerable and those suffering from addiction, will build 23 one and two bedroom flats on the site of the old Liberal Club in Hedley Chase.

The supported living development will provide affordable homes for local people and will feature an ancillary workshop, training room, office and communal facilities.

A public exhibition highlighting the plans was held at New Wortley Community Centre in February.

The Crypt’s fundraising and PR director Martin Patterson told The Dispatch at the time:

“The flats would provide an opportunity for people to move on towards independence, they could be people who have difficulty holding down tenancies due to personal difficulties but who have addressed those issues and now want a sustainable tenancy. The people we take will have quite a broad background.”

As reported by The Dispatch last August, St George’s Crypt (Development) CIC bought the site from Leeds City Council for an undisclosed sum.

The former Liberal Club was demolished more than 10 years ago.

Further reading about the plans and the council’s decision can be found here.
