Plans to convert King’s Arms in Holbeck into flats

Kings Armsplanning application has been submitted to convert the King’s Arms public house in Holbeck into flats. The building is a Grade Two listed building. According to the ‘SOUTH HOLBECK HISTORIC CHARACTERISATION STUDY’ dated October 2008, of which Leeds City Council is a co-author,  it is recommended that ‘to retain the integrity of the local heritage,efforts should be made to repair and refurbish the King’s Arms, listed but now vacant and boarded up’.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has reported that campaigners have raised concerns about the plans, stating that the building should be kept as a public house. Do you have any comments or views?
