Pudsey: Empty shops could become flats

Two empty shop units in Pudsey could be turned into flats, if plans submitted to Leeds Council are approved.

Applicant Hannah Rhodes of Horsforth-based Grovehall Estates wants to transform the shop units in 11-15 Chapeltown, Pudsey, into one-bedroom flats.

The planning application states the ground floor has remained empty since February 2018, “despite numerous attempts to attract new tenants.”

Alterations include replacing the painted timber shop fronts and replacing them with stone waling, new windows and doors, new access gate to side, new roof to existing ground floor roof.

A design report submitted with the application concludes: “It is considered that this proposal will provide a positive viable use to what is currently vacant space in a prominent location on a major thoroughfare through the town.

“It is considered that the works will significantly enhance the appearance of the building on its prominent front elevation.

“Upon completion the development will provide a positive contribution to the streetscape and local area, adding to the vitality and sustainability of the town centre, whilst improving visually the appearance of the building.”

The plans can be read in full here.
