Eight new homes could be built on land next to of Grade II Listed Poplar Farm on Bagley Lane in Farsley.
Mr J Patel wants to build a combination of two and three-bed houses on a site housing two currently disused light industrial units.
A design and access statement accompanying the application says the units are run down and concludes:
“[The] proposal addresses a housing need within the Farsley area, and looks to sensitively approach a scheme to replace a redundant light industrial site use whilst mitigating impact on the surrounding properties, and protecting the setting and adjacent woodland in a well considered and appropriate manner.
“Therefore it is the belief of the project team that permission should be granted to provide the local district with much-needed residential accommodation.”
The applicant, who also owns Poplar Farmm ran a consultation event earlier this year. One objection has so far been received against the proposals, with concerns including use of materials, flooding, highway access and impact on bats.
