COUNCILLORS will be asked on Thursday to approve a floating eco-centre and fish farm for young offenders.
Kirklees Council wants to build the £1.5m centre in Heckmondwike.
If planning permission is granted, it would be the first place in the country to test floating buildings as a way of combating flooding.
The centre would be built on 4.5 hectares at a disused site off Walkley Lane near the Ponderosa animal centre. It would include a fishing lake and a coffee shop.
The centre would employ 12 people and 30 offenders would work there to learn about fish farming.
One resident has objected.
