Wine bar plan for former Leeds carpet shop approved

Have your say

A New wine bar in Leeds is to be built after proposals to change the use of a vacant plot were signed off by city planners.

The former carpet shop at 131 Queen Street in Morley is set to be transformed after an application by Nigel Bell was approved. Two people would be employed at the new bar, according to the application form.

It is due to be open between noon and 11.30pm on every day of the week.

A council report reads: “The nearest noise sensitive residential properties are set well away from the proposed use which would operate in a town centre context.”

The document adds: “It is not considered that the loss of the A1 unit would have significant impact on the availability of retail services to the local community nor would it undermine the vitality and viability of the Morley Town Centre and the centre’s retail presence would not be undermined.”

The stone building comprises two storeys under a slate roof with a yard to the back if the site.
