A former funeral directors’ building will be demolished and replaced with a supported living complex in Stanningley.
Plans for 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, have been given the green light.
Leeds City Council planning officers imposed a raft of conditions to the development, including the safeguarding of preserved trees and a soil remediation strategy.
Planning officers refused previous plans due to concerns over the design, and other issues.
The plans can be viewed in full here.
The undertakers was 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.
