Setback for homes on warehouse site

A COMPANY’S plans to redevelop a former warehouse to create 11 new homes have suffered a setback.

Ideal Boats Company Ltd has applied to replace an extant planning permission for the development of the two bedroom dwellings at Woodbottom Mill, Hollins Road, Todmorden.

But members of Todmorden Town Council’s development committee have recommended refusal of the application due to the loss of an employment site and traffic issues.

Councillors also had concerns about the land stability.
