A former working men’s club in Pudsey WILL be demolished and transformed into seven family homes, planners have decided.

Pudsey Sports and Social Club – also known at The Parkfield Suite – off Richardshaw Road and Parkfield Terrace, shut its doors in March last year. And now developer Leeds City Developments Ltd has received the go ahead demolish it and build family homes.

The plans have been scaled back from original proposals submitted last year, which were for nine homes on the site.

A planning statement by the applicants concluded:

“The site is highly sustainable with good access to employment, local amenities and services.”

A Leeds City Council planning officer’s report said:

“Adequate landscaping can be introduced and the development avoids any undue impact on the living conditions of existing residents and will secure good levels of amenity for future occupants of the proposed development subject to conditions.

“Highways have assessed the proposal and no objections are raised with regard parking provision or detriment to highway safety.”

East Bar expansion

East Bar and Grill, down Richardshaw Lane, has applied for two single-storey rear extensions, toextend existing roof terrace with stair access and a new single storey entrance lobby to front.
