Stonebridge Mills: Revised housing plans move closer to reality

Ambitious plans to transform an abandoned historic mill in Farnley into housing have moved a step closer to reality.

Stonebridge Mills Ltd received planning permission last June to change the Grade II Listed Stonebridge Mills site into 112 dwellings.

These include turning the late 18th century mill buildings into 30 dwellings and building 82 new homes – a total of 112 properties off Stonebridge Lane.

The company is starting to move forward with the proposals following lockdown earlier this year, and this week received planning permission from Leeds City Council to tweak some of the plans.

The amendments include a sub-station being moved to a building at the base of a chimney.

A planning officer’s report concluded:

“The design of the proposed extension is considered to be acceptable. It is small in scale and to be constructed using re-claimed stone form the demolition of adjoining buildings.”

Stonebridge Mills is on the Heritage at Risk register in Leeds.
