Newton Lane: Plan to demolish former Cheers pub in Yorkshire to build bungalows

A former Wakefield pub building looks set to be demolished for new houses.

A planning application has been submitted to Wakefield Council for permission to bulldoze the old Cheers pub, on Newton Lane, Outwood.

The proposal includes building five two and three-bed bungalows on the site.

The former free house has been closed for around two years.

The application includes retaining ten parking spaces currently on the site.
