HOMELESS young people could benefit from a new shelter in Huddersfield.
Councillors will decide if North House in Lockwood can be converted into accommodation for up to nine people.
The building on Swan Lane was a centre for adults with learning disabilities before it closed in 2009.
Connect Housing Association has secured a £120,000 grant from the Homes and Communities Agency to convert the building into emergency accommodation for homeless people aged under-25.
The group has asked Kirklees to lease North House at peppercorn rent.
Seventy-eight young people applied for help from Kirklees in 2010/11 because their parents were no longer willing to accommodate them and another 46 became homeless because their friends could no longer house them.
The council’s Labour Cabinet will rule on the proposal at its meeting at Huddersfield Town Hall at 4pm on Tuesday.
