A HUGE housing plan is on the cards for Dalton.
Developers are planning 241 new homes for a former industrial site off Crossley Lane.
Plans have been submitted to Kirklees Council and a decision could be made as early as next March.
The development is planned for land off Crossley Lane, Cold Royd Lane and Albany Road.
The site was used for many years by wool scouring company Jarmains.
In recent years it has been used as a warehouse and storage site.
Now, it could provide 241 homes with garages, although full details of the style of housing have not yet been revealed.
The planning application is expected to go before Kirklees Council committee members in February.
Planning officer Bill Topping said a consultation period had begun, so people could have their say on the proposals.
He added: "The applicants have carried out traffic surveys and other research into the site which will be made available in due course.
"The proposed site is close to both Oxfield Beck and Fenay Beck, so there are environmental issues to address as well," said Mr Topping.
The applicants wanting to build on the land are Axle Logistics and Kingsbridge Pension Trustees.
The logistics firm currently owns and runs warehousing and storage on the site.
Kingsbridge are based in Kirkstall Road, Leeds, and refused to comment on the proposed development.
