Priestley Homes will soon carry out £2.2million of restoration works on Green Lane Mill in Holmfirth to create 11 luxury, two-bedroom apartments.
The plans for the scheme – a joint venture with GJR Developments – were originally submitted in 2017 and subject to an 18-month appeal process. They will see the transformation of the former mill building into a high-specification residential development for local owner-occupiers.
Green Lane Mill is situated approximately one mile from Holmfirth town centre and seven miles from Huddersfield. Prospective residents will benefit from easy access to a variety of green spaces, including the nearby Peak District National Park, which is approximately four miles south of Holmfirth.
A six-month programme of work is expected to commence in Q3 2019 and will be carried out by the developer’s contracting arm, Priestley Construction. Completion is expected Q1 2020.
The project team comprises contractor, Priestley Construction; architects, Priestley Design Ltd; planning consultant, Indigo Planning.
Nathan Priestley, chief executive officer of Priestley Homes, said: “We’re thrilled to have been given the green light to transform this exquisite building into sophisticated new homes. Our talented team is excited to bring the property, which has been vacant for two years, back to its former glory.
“Our original plans were fully supported by the Local Planning Authority, which saw the merit in transforming a disused building into much-needed homes in the area. Unfortunately, the scheme took 18 months to receive approval by committee despite hitting all necessary planning policy benchmarks from the offset.
“Our resilience during this process, which should have been a straightforward planning application, demonstrates our commitment to the scheme and to bringing luxury, contemporary apartments to this sought-after market town.”
