PLANS for a new restaurant in Milnsbridge look set to be scrapped.
An application has been submitted to turn an old industrial building at the junction of Tanyard Road and Market Street into a restaurant.
But Kirklees Council officials are worried about the lack of parking and are urging councillors to refuse the plans.
In a report to councillors at a planning sub-committee today planning officer Richard Evans said highways officials were worried at the shortage of parking spaces on the site.
There were a lot fewer than the number needed.
Mr Evans said that, based on original plans, 58 spaces were needed for the restaurant, a nearby warehouse and a car repair garage.
But only 21 were being provided.
However, Clr Robert Iredale has shown his support for the plans.
He says Milnsbridge needs somewhere that people can eat and the application was ideal because it is away from the village centre.
He also says in the report that he thinks because traffic is so light in the area on-street parking will not be a problem.
Despite Clr Iredale's views, council planning officials are recommending that the plans are refused.
