COUNCILLORS have approved a major change to a Huddersfield landmark.
An ornamental lake will be built in Greenhead Park.
Kirklees Council’s Huddersfield Planning Sub-committee unanimously approved the plan yesterday. .
The lake is part of a multi-million-pound project to restore the park to its former glory.
It will be dug out of a large grassed area filled with trees near the boundary with Park Drive.
A lake on the same site is believed to have been filled in back in the 1950s.
Sub-committee member Clr Tony Brice welcomed the development.
The Lindley Conservative said: “I think it’s an absolutely superb proposal which can only enhance the area.”
Other plans for the park include restoring the conservatory, replacing iron railings around the perimeter and forming a children’s play area.
