Roundhay church secures planning permission for major revamp with RIBA architects
Martin Walsh Architectural (MWA), RIBA chartered family owned architects, has secured listed building consent on behalf of client Pentecostal City Mission Church.
The scheme is to see St Johns Pentecostal Church in Roundhay undergo repairs and improvements.
MWA will be responsible for overseeing vital repairs to both the interior and exterior of the Grade II-listed building on Wetherby Road, unused for many years.
Repairs to the building’s external walls will commence in mid-February, aiming to prevent any further structural damage.
Interior improvements will also be made, including the fit out of a modern heating system and the installation of a state-of-the-art lighting system.
Matt Morgan, assistant technician at MWA, said: “At MWA, we have a great understanding and knowledge of listed properties and are able to deliver projects that can transform a building whilst also respecting the site’s history.
“We’re really looking forward to starting work at St John’s. It’s a fantastic building with a great deal of history and it will be brilliant to see the church become an integral part of the community once again.”
