Plans to demolish a Todmorden mill and build 50 residential properties are being considered by Calderdale Council Planning Committee.

Atlantica Estates Ltd. has proposed to construct the residential units on land adjacent to the A646 Halifax/Manchester railway line where vacant Cinderhill Mill, Halifax Road, currently stands.

Plans for seven blocks consisting of 26 three and four-bedroom townhouses and single storey houses with roof gardens and 24 one, two and three-bedroom apartments with 66 car parking spaces, including six disabled spaces, on the 1.5 acre derelict industrial site have been put forward by agent Mr Roger Lee of Roger Lee Planning Ltd.

The applicant said the plans include a mix of housing types and sizes in order to make the development attractive to a wide range of potential interested buyers.

Todmorden town centre and neighbouring towns can be accessed by public transport on the A646, Halifax Road, with bus stops adjacent to the site and the site is located 1.5 miles from Todmorden train station.

Applicant Roger Lee, said: “This is a revised and updated application which looks to make the best use of this highly sustainable site providing regeneration of derelict land following the demolition of the majority of the buildings on the site on safety grounds.”

Calderdale Council planning report confirms the site can be accessed safely and states there are no transport or traffic issues and no reason why the proposed mixed-use development cannot proceed.
