Have your say

Plans to transform a fire-ravaged former nightclub into a new office building have been recommended for approval when they are scrutinised by the council next week.

Property developer Rushbond is looking to turn the Majestic in Leeds city centre into a six-storey office complex, crowned by an eye-catching new roof.

The scheme has had a number of objections from the Cinema Theatre Association, Historic England, Twentieth Century Society and a private individual but it has received support from the owner of an adjacent property, people who attended a community engagement event and Leeds Civic Trust.
