A design statement submitted on behalf of Leeds City Council said:

“The buildings have been altered over the years and this is evident in the buildings that stand today.

“The proposed repairs to the buildings have been developed with this in mind and are of a sympathetic nature following current best practice guidance from Historic England as well as relevant professional bodies.

“The proposals ensure that the repairs do not detract from the buildings’ historic significance.”
