Residential and retail plan for former Armley Town Street pub

A former pub in Armley Town Street could be transformed into residential and two retail units, if plans submitted to the council are approved.

Applicant Mr A Yeung wants to change of use of The Royal Hotel, which already features residential accommodation, to form two retail units on the ground floor, and an eight-bedroom house in multiple occupation (HMO) on the first and second floors.

A HMO is a property rented out by at least three people who are not from one ‘household’ (for example a family) but share facilities like the bathroom and kitchen. It’s sometimes called a ‘house share’.

Shared kitchen, dining and living accommodation would be provided.

A design statement submitted with the application states: “The existing building will largely remain untouched with the exception of the introduction of two doors in the front elevation. One will serve the smaller retail unit, while the second acts as main entrance to the HMO over.”

The plans can be found in full here.

  1. And if the levelling up on Armley Town Street takes place where are they going to park, get deliveries, unload if there is no vehicle access?
