A DEVELOPER wants to extend the time limit of planning permission to develop a 2.5 hectare site in Elland.
Keyland Developments Ltd have outline planning permission for land between the A629 and B6112 Stainland Road, which is due to lapse as no work has started.
But the land is currently advertised as being up for sale for £250,000.
It has been allocated as an employment site and a planning report shows there would be space for seven units occupying up to 8,685sqm of floorspace and office space, on site parking and space for HGV turning, a new access site off Stainland Road and some environmental work such as tree planting.
The outline application was approved by Calderdale planners in December 2009 and, like most planning applications, a time limit is set for work to begin.
That is set to expire and the applicant has applied for the extension of the planning permission for the site.
The site earmarked for development is bounded by the River Calder, the Calder and Hebble Navigation and Stainland Road.
It has been used as a sewage sludge, permission for which ceased in 2005.
