D-Day ruling on huge renovation plan for Calderdale mill
The fate of a historic mill in Hebden Bridge will be decided by Calderdale councillors as they make a ruling on plans for the building.
Plans have been submitted to Calderdale Council for Old Town Mill to be transformed by a Yorkshire based company Clay Developments, providing new homes, communal spaces, cafe and offices. The Council's planning committee will make a ruling but here are some of the artist impressions of how the mill could look if proposals are given the go-ahead.
The developers say the historic mill overlooking Hebden Bridge has been in decline for the last 30 years
In a supporting document Historic England welcomed the repair and conversion of Old Town Mill saying: Textile mills were the original Northern Powerhouse and securing active and sustainable futures for vacant mills is critical to sustaining the character of these important symbols of West Yorkshires industrial heritage.
