Plans to transform a ‘nuisance’ former 19th century Pudsey pub into flats have been approved by Leeds City Council.
The Boar’s Head, on Roker Lane, has stood empty since 2003 and plans to transform it into five apartments, with new windows and doors, will see the building converted into residential use.
A planning officer’s report approving the development concludes:
“The proposal will regenerate a long-standing derelict nuisance property, with a quality refurbishment scheme. The proposal will also deliver new housing in a sustainable location, which will have a positive impact on the character of the locality.”
The proposals were approved subject to 12 conditions, including new stonework being natural stone and the final approval of new window designs.
Planning permission was granted last December for the demolition of the pub and the construction of a pair of semi-detached properties. Last May council planners refused permission for a row of three terraced properties.
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.
