Following a planning committee meeting in Bradford yesterday, we’re pleased to announce our mixed use development at Bridgehouse mills in Haworth was ‘unanimously’ approved.
Involving the conversion and extension of an existing listed mill into 44 high quality ‘Retirement Living’ apartments, the scheme for Skipton Properties will also create another 77 new build family houses in this fantastic valley setting.
The development also embraces the existing employment uses on the site with new premises being proposed for Wyedean Weaving and additional accommodation for Airedale Springs.
The proposal sits well within its context adjacent to Haworth village, Bridgehouse Beck and the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, it also guarantees a new long term future for the existing mill.
The new Bridgehouse Beck Park located at the southern end of the site not only provides public amenity space and recreational facilities but also gives betterment to the potential flood risk in the centre of Haworth.
Living Sector Director at Watson Batty Architects, Richard Merrills said,
“On an adventurous scheme such as this, both large in scale and bringing with it some challenging aspects, we couldn’t be more pleased with achieving this planning approval.”
