AN offer from Younger Homes to buy the former swimming baths site on Mill Royd Street, Brighouse, has been accepted by Calderdale Council.

The deal is still subject to legal agreement but in the meantime businessman Bill Ibberson has cleared trees and shrubs from alongside the Calder and Hebble Navigation behind the former baths ready for redevelopment to get underway.

Agents Jones Lang LaSalle of Leeds have been handling the sale of the swimming baths and adjoining car parks on behalf of the council.

Mr Ibberson said: “We have been clearing the site in preparation for redevelopment but at the moment I am unable to release any more details about what that might be. I hope to be able to say more soon.”

Workmen moved onto the canalside site on Monday and cut down trees.
