Plans to convert part of an office building into three single person apartments aimed at the professional and retirement market have been approved by planners.
Applicant Emma Firbank, of Pudsey-based FPAD LTD, successfully applied to Leeds City Council to retain the front office shop area at 59 Chapeltown, Pudsey, with the remaining area being converted into three, one-bedroom apartments.
A report to planning officers said the building has been empty for five years, and a planning statement submitted with the application added: “The proposal seeks to make best use of the building and meet the needs of the market while not detracting from the character of the area.
“As such, the proposal has been designed to preserve the character of the building as seen from the public highway in order to protect the visual amenities of this part of Pudsey.”
Planning officers at Leeds City Council had no objection to the proposals.
