Yorkshire aparthotel gets the go ahead

UK: Councillors have given planning consent for a new development of homes, retail units and an aparthotel in Todmorden, Calderdale.

Calderdale Council Cabinet approved outline plans for the £9.2 million transformation of the disused Rose Street site in the town centre, which it is hoped will benefit from Government Towns Fund cash.

The site was originally terraced housing, had been home to the town’s medical centre from the 1980s until a decade ago and has since been left derelict except for a garden area looked after by Incredible Edible volunteers.

Local councillor Susan Press said: “It is urgently needed, it is a part of Todmorden that urgently needs regeneration, bringing housing back – not just affordable housing but hopefully housing for rent, building a green space and possibly an aparthotel.

Councillor Scott Patient who is Cabinet member for Climate Change and Environment, said the design would ultimately feature urban drainage schemes and the site would be developed holistically, mindful of flooding risks.
