One of Morley’s historic landmarks could be turned into apartments , a function room and a bar if plans to redevelop it are given the green light.
A planning application has been submitted to Leeds City Council’s planning department to turn the Pavilion into 14 apartments with alterations to include the formation of a function room and bar at the well-known High Street building.
The plan would see the existing brick-built theatre building converted into residential apartments –seven one bed and seven two bed – with alterations to the existing bar/deli and restaurant being made so that it can be reopened as a new restaurant.
The Pavilion has been a theatre, cinema, bingo hall, nightclub and restaurant since it was built in 1911, and was one of the venues where a young Ernie Wise started out.
The proposal involves changing the existing layout to allow the apartments to have access from both High Street and South Queen Street.
The application by Mohammed Aslam Ibrahim said that the proposed delopment has been designed to retain the character and external appearance of the existing building.
