A BREWERY is planning to move after an arson attack.
Golcar Brewery has tabled plans to shift to a storage building near its present premises on Swallow Lane.
An application has been submitted to Kirklees Council and a decision is expected this summer.
Brewery owner John Broadbent said he had been unable to operate on the site since the arson attack in March.
He added: "The equipment was not affected, but the building has been left heavily smoke-damaged and without electricity.
"I have been able to get beer brewed elsewhere under licence, but I haven't been able to brew on the premises for almost two months."
Mr Broadbent said he wanted to move into a larger unit on the same industrial estate.
That unit is used for storage and was formerly a light engineering works.
Mr Broadbent said some residents had objected to the brewery when it opened in its original premises because the unit was close to housing.
But he said: "I think there will be less opposition this time, because the new unit is further away from the road."
Golcar Brewery's main customer is the Rose and Crown in the village.
