These plans have now been approved by the council.

A pergola with roller shutter walls will be installed.

New timber clad TV housing and new festoon lighting fixed to planters are included within plans.

The existing car park will be relined to create defined parking spaces - with four expected to be lost to incorporate the new seating area.

There are no planned changes to the inside of the pub, with all plans centring on the car park area.

A planning statement submitted to Leeds Council states: "This work is intended to improve the visual appearance of the premises, and the facilities offered to customers, and to help ensure the long-term viability of the business into the future.”

The plans were approved on April 14.

An accompanying report said: "“It is considered that the development complies with the aims and intentions of all relevant policies and will not cause harm to visual amenity, nor residential amenity and highway safety.”
