Farsley: Builders’ yard will become housing


A derelict former builders’ yard in Farsley WILL be transformed into new houses, it’s been confirmed.

Westcourt Homes Ltd has secured full planning permission for eight new houses and the conversion and extension of a former workshop building on the former H Johnson builders’ yard site.

Work is due to begin late spring/early summer and the phased development at the site next to Farsley Liberal Club will take roughly 18 months to finish.

Tim Hodgson, Director of the Westcourt Group, said:

“We’re delighted to finally get the go-ahead to create new homes in an area that has been neglected for a substantial amount of time. We spent a number of months working with planners and architects to make sure the new properties and conversion were sympathetic to the local environment.

“It was always the case that design suitability would be the most important factor in the build and the eight three-bed homes will have a strong focus on a design that fits with the conservation area upon which the plot stands.

“The property is currently in two parts, the original building and a later extension. This later extension will be removed and replaced with a revised rear extension, allowing for superb open plan kitchen diner opening out onto a grand roof terrace.”

The Dispatch reported last August on the initial proposals for nine houses on the site off Arthur Street and New Street.
