More than 100 listed buildings in Leeds are at risk of neglect or decay, according to a new report.
Leeds City Council’s buildings at risk survey names 120 buildings in the city as in danger of falling into disrepair.
The 120 figure marks shows an increase of 23 grade I or II listed buildings to the at risk register.
Fifteen of the total number are owned by the council. But the authority insists the increase is mainly down to improvements in recording, rather than a sudden decline in the state of the city’s buildings.
It adds nearly a third of the new entries are grave slabs in the church yard of St Mary on the Hill, Morley, and insists money is available to rescue buildings from disrepair.
