Planning consultants DPP have got the go ahead to turn Tottie Hall, a grade II-listed house, into a care home and restore a 19th century staircase to its original position
The application by the Leeds office of planning consultants DPP, applying on behalf of the Springfield Healthcare Group, was accepted by Leeds City Council. It will turn Tottie Hall, which was constructed in 1627 and was home of the Tottie family, into a care home.
DPP planner Will Martin said: ‘The permission is subject to a referral to Government office, but after over 10 years of lying vacant, we are delighted to see the scheme gain approval from Leeds City Council.
‘We hope that Government office will make the correct decision; the Grange’s restoration will create a significant number of jobs within Seacroft at a time when they are most needed.’
Springfield Healthcare Group chairman and Leeds Care Association board director Graeme Lee said: ‘Our aim at Seacroft Grange is to deliver a specialist state of the art care facility, offering a wide range of care options under one roof.’
