Parking concerns scupper Bradford Road restaurant expansion

Proposals to change a first-floor flat in Pudsey into a seating area for a downstairs takeaway have been rejected by Leeds City Council planners, writes John Baron.

Applicant Mr Kuldeep Rana wanted to expand his Rana’s 2 Indian and fast food takeaway into the two-bedroom flat above it at 457 Bradford Road.

But a Leeds council planning officer refused the application, citing concerns over disturbing nearby residents and that the proposed restaurant failed to provide sufficient off-street car parking and servicing provision.

“This is likely to lead to increased demand for on-street parking around the site, including potential parking on the footpath, causing harm to pedestrian and vehicular users of the highway,” the officer’s report added.

The proposed use of a restaurant would require 14 parking spaces, which the site cannot provide. Council concerns centred around a ‘significant’ need for on-street parking.
