Plans to convert a former caretaker’s house into an after-school club in Swinnow are set to be decided by Leeds City Council planning officers next month.
As first reported by WLD in December, the superintendent’s bungalow at Park Spring Primary School, in Swinnow Lane, is set to be extended and converted into an after-school club with a hall, office, kitchen and toilets – if the planning application gets the green light.
A design and access statement published by developers NPS stated:
“The site has a total 454 places including 28 for nursery children. A need for the proposed after-school club has been identified due to the number of pupils and appropriate areas available.
“The proposed works will provide and fulfil a vital requirement for the school for children. By using a the extended bungalow it will afford an expedient installation with minimised impact upon the local community.”
It added that the area around the building would be a ruberoid play surface, with artificial grass.
