Retrospective planning permission to change of use of number 42 Chapeltown from a retail shop to a hot-food take-away has been refused by council planners.
Two letters of objection to Mr A Hussain’s application were received by the council from local residents.
Cllr Simon Seary (Cons, Pudsey) has also raised concerns. These included no dedicated bin stores, only one door into the property and concerns over the extraction to the front of the building.
A council planning officer’s report refused the retrospective application amid concerns over waste storage and ventilation.
The report concluded: “The Local Planning Authority consider the method of ventilation to be unacceptable by virtue of its location at fascia level therefore below the habitable room windows of the first floor flat above the application site.
“This results in cooking odours entering the habitable rooms of the flat to the detriment of the living conditions of the occupants of that residential property.”
