Outline plans granted

Plans for a new health centre are one step closer.

Outline plans submitted on behalf of Younger Homes (Northern) Ltd have been granted for the construction of a four storey building with car park, health centre, and care home on the corner of Huddersfield Road and Mill Royd Lane, Brighouse.

The application originally submitted in December 2010 has been plagued with delays because a bat survey and flood risk assessment were needed before it could be considered.

The health centre is the first phase of a major development planned for the area which includes the Sugdens Mill buildings.

Included within the plans are a car park at lower ground floor level, a health care centre on the ground, first and second floors and a care home on the third floor. There will be a shop associated with the health centre and ancillary facilities associated with the care home also at ground floor level.
