A plan for an arts and antiques centre in Holmfirth has been unveiled.
Developers want to take over a former Drill Hall, used for years by a textile company, and offer a base for artists and craft workers.
The plan from Holme Valley Vintage has now been submitted to Kirklees Council.
Miss Louise Anderson, of Sheffield, has applied to turn the former Kastix Imports premises, off Huddersfield Road, Thongsbridge, into a base for a series of craft and retail outlets along with a cafe.
The building was the former Drill Hall before being taken over by Kastix.
That company went into receivership in 2001. The company, which has its headquarters in Thongsbridge, had switched largely to overseas manufacturing, but the move failed.
More than 50 people lost their jobs.
Kastix produced womenswear and children’s clothing.
In recent years, the building has been used by a double glazing company.
Miss Anderson’s plan is for a centre with 50 outlets selling arts, crafts and antiques as well as 10 studio spaces.
In a report to planners, she outlines a project to hold regular crafts workshops and classes, as well as exhibitions.
“We shall actively promote young artists, crafters and designers across the region.
“The centre will collaborate with local businesses, schools, community groups and other art establishments.
“The centre will be a ‘go to’ destination place on the outskirts of Holmfirth’s already existing artistic community.
“The beautiful Art Deco building will house two floors of designers, craft workers and artists, working in a wide range of media including ceramics, vintage clothing, textiles, jewellery, glassware and antique furniture.”
