The former headquarters of Wood-Mitchell Building Group in Pudsey could be turned into a dozen homes, if plans are approved.
The Leeds contractor, which provided services including shopfitting and joinery, shut down earlier this year with the loss of 70 jobs.
Gregory Projects (Residential) has applied to demolish the existing empty buildings on the Sunnyfield Works site, off Intake Road, and build 12 two-bedroom houses which they say will be ‘in keeping with the character of the area’.
A planning brie submitted by developers says:
“… Units are laid out in two terraces along Hough Side Road and Intake Road with an internal courtyard providing parking and private amenity space accessed from an adoptable access drive from the site access on Intake Road.
“Pedestrian access will be provided to each house via gated access from Hough Side Road and Intake Road. A new footway will also be provided within the site boundary on the Intake Road frontage with the existing stone boundary wall relocated to the back of the new footway.”
The land has been sold, subject to contract, according to its listing on the Rightmove website.
More details on the plans can be found on Leeds City Council’s planning portal.
