COUNCILLORS have been asked to support a plan for nearly 100 new flats close to Huddersfield town centre.
CFK Developments wants to build 88 apartments on the corner of Wakefield Road and St Andrew’s Road in Aspley.
The Wetherby-based company also wants to build a restaurant and shop on the site, which is currently occupied by the Mid-Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
The plan includes 5,574 square metres of apartment space, 465 sq m for retail and 279 sq m for the restaurant. There would be 101 parking spaces.
Kirklees Council’s Huddersfield Planning Sub-committee will consider giving outline planning permission tomorrow. Council officers have recommended approval.
Last October the sub-committee delayed giving full planning permission because of concerns about the design. Labour’s Clr Molly Walton described the original design as “rather awful”.
But the developer has agreed to discuss a new design.
