A SPORTS club hopes to sell land for building to pay for a scuppered changing rooms project.
Huddersfield YMCA's £600,000 scheme had the plug pulled on it last summer, after a cash crisis forced Sport England to withdraw grants.
But now the club is seeking outline planning permission for housing on land off Rafborn Avenue, Salendine Nook.
Plans have been submitted to Kirklees Council for a housing scheme and officials are due to make a decision in the next few weeks.
Last year, planners rejected an application for four blocks of flats on the same site.
Huddersfield YMCA secretary Michael Milne said the withdrawal of the Sport England grant last year had left the club "in the lurch".
He said the changing facilities at the club were really bad, adding: "We have to try and find every way we can to build the new changing rooms."
Mr Milne said the club was keen to open up the whole site to more groups, including children and women.
But it could not do so because of the state of the facilities.
The plans included 10 new changing rooms, a fitness room, physiotherapy and first aid rooms and facilities for the disabled.
Mr Milne said the club had spent a "substantial amount" in preparing plans before the cash was withdrawn.
Indications from Sport England suggested they would not get it back, he added.
The club was among 40 unlucky schemes who bid for £40m from Sport England.
At the time it was suggested the cash would go towards London's bid to host the 2012 Olympics.
