A FORMER Lloyds Bank banking hall on Manchester Road could be converted into a retail development if new plans are approved.
The vacant unit – 770 Manchester Road, is the subject of a planning application that was submitted to Bradford Council shortly before Christmas.
The application, submitted by Javaid Bostan, is to sub divide the building to create three new shops – one 37 square metres, one 43 square metres and one 44.9 square metres.
Each shop would also have storage space on the first floor area – which currently has planning use as an apartment.
The bank building is on one of the busiest routes into and out of the city centre.
A decision on the application is expected in February.
