Seven new homes could be built on land next to Grade II Listed Poplar Farm on Bagley Lane in Farsley.
Applicant Mr J Patel withdrew sightly larger plans for eight homes on the site last September following local concerns over materials, flooding, highway access and impact on bats.
Mr Patel wants to build a combination of three and four-bed houses on a site featuring two currently disused light industrial units. He says the new proposals address previous concerns relating to highways safety, flood risk, scale, design, amenity space and arboricultural impact.
A planning statement accompanying the plans concludes:
“The application site would provide a suitable and sustainable location for housing with regard to its status on the Council’s settlement hierarchy, accessibility to services, and the relationship with the existing building environment.
“The proposed development of the site would have positive impact on the character and setting of the Farsley Conservation Area and the settings of the neighbouring Grade II Listed Buildings.”
The new plans can be viewed in full here.
Mark Stevenson’s Mark’s History column examined the historical importance of the site last July.
