A New Nando’s has opened its doors in Headingley in a venue which had previously proved controversial with some local residents.
In 2013, campaigners had fought the against the restaurant chain’s bid to open a branch at St Michael’s Court, in the same building as Headingley Medical Centre.
Councillors and residents had voiced fears over parking and traffic, as well as litter and noise.
But this week, Nando’s officially opened its new restaurant, which boasts an extension and an outdoor seating area.
The chain is understood to have invested £1m in the branch, which has also created 30 new jobs.
