Listed pub conversion gets green light

A former Bradford pub with listed status has received approval from council planners for conversion into apartments.

The building that was once the Nags Head, a public house that dated back to the 19th century and was used by travellers journeying between Halifax and Bradford. Based in Clayton Heights, the site has more recently been the home of Paprika, a restaurant serving Indian cuisine. However, the property has been vacant for many years now and has become derelict.

In 2020, an application was submitted to Bradford’s planners seeking permission to transform the disused building into flats. Now, planning officers have granted approval, so the scheme can move ahead to convert the former pub into eight one-bedroom apartments. Additionally, a new extension with two-storeys will be built. Located in a conservation area and with listed status, the developers were required to alter plans to gain approval.

According to the Yorkshire Post, planning officers commented:

“Additional details have been submitted in respect of the doors, windows and external guttering, which provide further assurances that the scheme will be carried out in a manor to respect the status and historical and architectural merit.”

Property owners looking to expand living spaces with building and house extensions in Chester, Bradford and other UK cities can rely on local architects for help. Professional architects can design extensions that are appropriate for the environment they are based in, helping the progress of planning applications. They can also act as agents for homeowners when required, communicating with council planners on their behalf.
