A LANDMARK Leeds building is set to be bulldozed, after a demolition order has been submitted to Leeds City Council.

The former Yorkshire Post Newspapers hedquarters at Wellington Street, which still has a small number of staff working there, went up for sale last year after the majority of staff moved to offices at nearby Number 1 Leeds, at Whitehall Road.

The 220,000 sq ft (20,438 sq m) of offices and printing works, which were in operation until recently, has 150 car parking spaces.

The 4.75 acre site next to Leeds Inner Ring Road is a prime city location.

The official ‘Determination for demolition of former Yorkshire Post newspaper print works and offices’ was submitted on September 5.

When it was opened in 1970 by Prince Charles it housed more than 1,300 staff.
