A former funeral directors’ building could be demolished and replaced with a supported living complex in Stanningley.

Plans include the demolition of the existing building and outbuildings and construction of a specialist complex comprising of 12 flats and eight bungalows at The Homestead, at Wheater’s Fold, off Stanningley Town Street.

A total of 20 full-time staff would be employed at the development, according to plans submitted by Mr Partakis of Regent Street, London.

A design and access statement accompanying the plans says:

“The application scheme provides a real opportunity to enhance the site,
provide much needed assisted living housing and improve the appearance of the site.

“The site is located in the centre of a residential and commercial area where there are local amenities, good access roads and transport links.”

Site history

The undertakers were last used in September 2014.

In 2017 developers JM Sykes & Sons successfully applied to Leeds City Council for permission to transform the site with nine houses.

Work would include the demolition of the existing garages, outhouses and a lean-to extension, and the renovation and extension of the undertakers – called The Homestead – to provide two houses instead of one.

The proposals met with a mixed response from locals.
