Foundary could be expanded

WEIR Minerals is applying for planning permission to expand its foundary capabilities at its Halifax Road, Todmorden, site.

The company has applied to Calderdale Council to construct an industrial unit consisting of a steel portal frame with masonry and metal sheet cladding.

A design and access statement submitting with the application says the new structure would stand adjacent to the existing foundary works to allow the firm to expand its foundary capabilities, and is important to the business.

It would aesthetically match the other buildings, says the statement.

The new building will be located centrally within the overall site boundaries, adds the statement.

Any representations on the application must be lodged with the council by June 22.
