Developer withdraws Farsley housing plans for second time

Plans for seven new homes on land next to Grade II Listed Poplar Farm in Farsley have been withdrawn for a second time.

Applicant Mr J Patel first withdrew sightly larger plans for eight homes on the Bagley Lane site last September following local concerns over materials, flooding, highway access and impact on bats.

Mr Patel then resubmitted reduced plans in February for a combination of three and four-bed houses on the site featuring two currently disused light industrial units.

He said the new proposals addressed previous concerns relating to highways safety, flood risk, scale, design, amenity space and arboricultural impact.

But Mr Patel this week withdrew the latest proposals.

Council officers had again raised concerns over highways and parking, and the Environment Agency had objected over the lack of an acceptable flood risk assessment and the close proximity of an existing culvert.

A planning statement accompanying Mr Patel’s proposals had concluded:

“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 plans can be viewed in full here.

Mark Stevenson’s Mark’s History column examined the historical importance of the site last July.
