THREE Huddersfield housing schemes are set to be turned down.
Kirklees officials want councillors to reject plans to build 241 homes on land off Crossley Lane, Dalton, 44 flats in Somerset Road, Almondbury, and 140 units in Queen Street South.
In a report to councillors, planning officer Pat Ashton says the plans for Dalton - submitted by Axle Logistics and Kingsbridge, of Kirkstall Road, Leeds - should be refused because a full traffic assessment has not been done.
The report says that although the site consists of four pieces of land a scheme of such a size would normally need a full survey into the impact of extra traffic.
He said the applicants had not submitted such a survey, so the council did not have enough information about future traffic.
Mr Ashton also said the land next to Lees Head Beck was in an area that could flood and no flood risk survey had been submitted.
Quest Property, of Barnsley, has applied on three previous occasions for permission to build flats on the former JCT garage site in Somerset Road.
The reasons for refusal in the past have been worries about the size of the development.
A planners' report to councillors says the new proposal is still too big.
The report says it would adversely affect the visual amenity of the area and people living in neighbouring houses.
The plan was criticised on the grounds of design materials, scale, density, layout, height and mass.
The Hepworth Honda garage site in Queen Street South has previously been approved as land where a housing scheme could be allowed.
But the plan to build 140 flats has been recommended for refusal because of its design, size and the materials that would be used.
A report says that because of those the scheme would create an "over-dominant feature in the street that would fail to respect the character and appearance of surrounding development."
A Kirklees planning sub-committee will discuss the plans at a meeting in Huddersfield Town Hall on Thursday.
