Go-ahead for renovation plan of historic Calderdale mills and how they will will look

The fate of a historic mill in Hebden Bridge has been decided by Calderdale councillors as they made a ruling on plans for the building.

Calderdale Council's planning committee has given the green light to transform Old Town Mill in Hebden Bridge into new homes, communal spaces, cafe and offices. This is how the buildings will look like.

The Grade II listed mill buildings  they date to the mid 19th century  will now be converted into one one-bedroom apartment or home, seven two-bedroom apartments or homes and 17 three-bedroom homes, as well as some small business units and a cafe.
