Wortley: New housing plans at former Prospect House site

Revised plans to build houses on the site of a demolished historic building in Wortley have been submitted.

Three four-bedroom family houses could be built on the former Prospect House building, which was demolished in the summer.

The application comes after Leeds City Council earlier this year gave MJT Developments Ltd permission to convert the building into seven flats and erect four new dwellings on the Fawcett Lane site.

The new proposals essentially replace the flats element of the initial application.

The plans can be viewed in full here.

The 136-year-old building was demolished after it had fallen into “an extremely bad and dangerous state of decoration and repair”.

  1. typical council, they leave historic properties to rot, then say they are in bad state of repair and demolish them, but if you want to make changes to historic buildings it’s a load of red tape.
