Kirklees Council is seeking consent for residential units on a former council depot in Skelmanthorpe.

The council’s Physical Resources and Procurement team has applied to the planning authority for outline consent for residential units on the land on the corner of Station Road and Wood Street.

It is proposed that there would be six, three or four bed homes on the site following demolition of existing derelict buildings and clearance on the former council depot site.

The application is open to public consultation until November 23.

The application forms part of the council’s strategy to sell off surplus land and buildings.

The council has previously said it could get more money for land and buildings if planning consent for change is sought before sale.

It is one of a number of applications submitted by the Physical Resources and Procurement team. Others include plans for one house on land at the rear of 52 and 54 Mountjoy Road, Edgerton, which is currently home to a derelict timber building and trees.

Another is for change of use from offices to five flats for Dryfield House, Healey Lane, Batley plus seven houses on adjoining land.
