The Tetley: public engagement event to take place on future of former Leeds brewery and art gallery
The building, which is soon to reach its 100 year anniversary, was previously the headquarters of Carlsberg-Tetley, until production ended at the site in 2011. Most recently, it was run as an art gallery by Project Space Leeds, which announced that it would leave the site at the end of the year when its lease reaches completion.
The building is situated in the heart of the huge Aire Park development, which is set to include a two hectare city park and up to 850 new homes.
Simon Schofield, head of Development North at Vastint UK, which is developing the site, said: “The Tetley is an iconic building within Leeds and we’re excited to finally be revealing our plans for its future. As custodians of this important piece of the city’s history, we have been working hard to look at not just how we preserve this beautiful building but continue its evolution and protect the vital role it plays as meeting place for the community, as we build towards its centenary.”
Vastint UK has announced that the public engagement session for The Tetley will take place on Monday, 27 November between 4pm and 7pm, with a drop-in event held inside the building.
The session will provide the first opportunity for people to see the developer’s vision for the former headquarters of Tetley Brewery, and will showcase images of the new mixed-use proposals which will look to increase accessibility to the building and create a “new destination for both locals and visitors to enjoy”.
Attendees will be able to speak to members of Vastint’s planning team. Those unable to make the session can find out more information about the plans on the schemes website.
The deadline for comments is 22nd December 2023. Vastint UK will officially submit its proposals to Leeds City Council in the new year.
