PLANS for old people's flats in Lindley are set to be rubber-stamped this week.
Developers McCarthy and Stone have applied to Kirklees Council for permission to demolish buildings off Lidget Street and build 60 flats.
The brownfield site now houses the Holly Bank Mill building and several smaller buildings.
If the plan goes ahead they would be replaced by one block of 45 sheltered flats and one of 15 affordable flats.
The new buildings would be two and three storeys high and made of artificial stone and grey slate.
A report to the council's planning sub-committee said the mill and surrounding buildings were vacant and therefore no jobs would be lost.
It added: "The proposed use is compatible with surrounding uses and would not interfere with their operational practices or flexibility."
The report went on: "The mill building is of no particular merit or interest, either visually or historically."
Committee members have been advised to approve the plan when they meet on Thursday.
