COUNCILLORS have recommended approval of plans to redevelop a mill and create new factory units and offices.

Members of Todmorden Town Council’s development committee voted in favour of Mardan Products Ltd’s application for the Sandholme Mill site, Commercial Street.

Coun Frank McManus said: “It will do a lot of good to a somewhat run-down part of town.

“Manufacturing is especially needed in this country.”

Coun Anne James said: “It’s keeping employment.

“They are making better use of the property.”
