‘Eyesore’ building to be offices

First published in

An “eyesore” empty building in Shipley can be turned into offices after Bradford Council granted planning permission for change of use.

Mark Leese had applied for permission to turn 10-12 Commercial Street from restaurant use to offices that would bring ten full-time and four part-time jobs to that part of the town.

Planning officer Peter Timbrell said: “The present vacancy and apparent deterioration of this building lends nothing to the appearance and attractiveness of this part of Shipley town centre.”
