THORNHILL Estates’ plan would change the face of large swathes of Huddersfield.
The 42-page Northern Gateway scheme submitted to Kirklees Council proposes developing 260 hectares (642 acres) of land from Ainley Top to Cowcliffe and including parts of Lindley Moor, Rastrick, Grimescar, Birkby and Fixby.
Thornhill Estates estimate the development, most of which is planned for greenfields, will bring £180m of investment to Huddersfield and create 1,532 jobs.
The main proposals are:
841 new houses
Offices covering 355,000sq ft of floor space
Some 10,000sq ft of new shops
An eco centre covering 20,000sq ft
A 60-bed hotel
A 60-bed care home.
Radical development at Huddersfield Golf Club in Fixby including a hotel with spa and golf academy.
