A nursing home for older people is set to be built on the site of the former Omnibus pub on Throstle Road North in Middleton.
Parkhomes UK Ltd have confirmed to South Leeds Life that they intend to submit a full planning application to Leeds City Council “within the next 8 weeks.”
Richard Todd from Parkhomes said:
“I can confirm that it is our intention to build a nursing home for the local community of South Leeds, which will hopefully provide valuable employment and a fabulous environment for elderly people.”
The Omnibus pub closed in February 2016 and was bought by a developer who submitted plans to convert it into 15 bedsits for single working age men. The planning application was rejected by officers and a revised plan for 9 bedsits was rejected by Councillors at Plans Panel in July 2017. The developer, PCC (Yorkshire) Ltd, then submitted a new outline plan to demolish the pub and build 14 houses on the site. This was approved last October, but not acted on.
