Plans for car-free homes and businesses in Keighley

A four-story development of “car-free” apartments and shops has been proposed for a prominent location between Keighley town center and its train station.

Manchester-based MZ Build Ltd. has submitted a planning application for construction on the corner of Low Mill Lane and Bradford Road.

The development would consist of three commercial units on the lower ground floor – below street level – and 24 one-bed apartments on the other floors.

The area – next to Khalid’s Restaurant – is currently used as a parking lot.

It is across Low Mill Lane from the Grade I listed Keighley Railway Station, which is home to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway Line.

In the planning application it says: “The site is currently undeveloped and not fully utilized, which means that the proposal provides for new economic investments in the area.”

The program will be a “car-free” development.

The application adds, “Since the site is easily accessible by a range of public transportation and is within walking distance of local shops and services, as shown in the figure below, car-free development is believed to be appropriate at this location is. ”

According to the planning documents, the commercial units could create up to 12 full-time jobs.

The council’s conservation officer, Jon Ackroyd, has already commented on the plans.

He described the proposed building as “undesirably box-shaped” and suggested redesigning it to give it a “more appealing architectural identity”.

A decision on the application is expected next month.
