A MASSIVE multi-million pound commercial development in Brighouse could transform the area by creating about 3,000 jobs.
The proposed new office park is earmarked for land between Wakefield Road and Clifton.
And the company behind the 61-acre scheme is Leeds-based PPG Land Ltd, which has also been involved in the successful development of the Lowfields Business Park in Elland.
Outline plans will be submitted to Calderdale Council within the next few weeks.
But it could take between seven and 12 years to build and fully occupy the large-scale development.
Mr Clive Brook, from Turley Associates planning consultants, said the park would be a major investment for the area.
It could be Calderdale's "jewel in the crown" in employment terms, he said.
"The development will create some 3,000 jobs and will provide opportunities for local companies to expand and for regional and national scale inward investment projects which could be attracted to the district," he added.
The site, just to the west of junction 25 of the M62, would include two high-quality office developments.
The buildings would be three or four storeys high.
There would also be a range of small office units and an area for leisure use such as a pub or small hotel and gymnasium.
Access would be from Wakefield Road.
Local companies would be able to expand their businesses on the site.
"The developers also anticipate that many Calderdale residents currently working in the Leeds and Manchester areas will be able to find employment closer to home," he said.
At the moment the site is allocated for business use in Calderdale's Unitary Development Plan.
PPG Land Ltd has investigated traffic issues, drainage, residential amenities and ecology while preparing their plans. They have included parking spaces for 2,500 cars.
People will have opportunity to analyse the plans in detail and ask questions about them at an exhibition expected to be mounted in January.
