Calderdale Council planning committee supported the expansion of an Elland Business Park.

The construction of five industrial units and extension of Land at Ashday Works Business Park, Elland Road, Brighouse, was granted to Malsoa Medical which exists 90 per cent of the existing Park.

Planning committee heard expansion was necessary to fulfil contracts with the US and Asian market. Plans claim 13 more jobs will be created.

The environment officer said the surrounding Green Belt would be affected ‘moderately’.

Calderdale councillors said they permitted plans subject to referral to Secretary of State.

Planning permission was granted for the construction of two properties at Old Cottage Close, Hipperholme.
