Plans lodged for nine-storey apartment building at former car park

A build-to-rent provider has submitted a full planning application for 122 apartments in Halifax town centre.

Plans by regeneration specialists Placefirst for the £16m project at Cow Green will see the prominent former multi-storey car park site turned into homes for rent.

If approved, the scheme will deliver one and two-bedroom apartments with bike storage and electric car charging points. Plans for the nine-storey building have been drawn up by JM Architects.

Pre-application advice has been sought from Calderdale Council and a public consultation took place in October. Maddox Planning is acting as planning consultant.

If consent is given, work is expected to start in mid-2023 and would be completed by 2025.

James Litherland, planning and development manager at Placefirst, said: “We are excited to submit our plans to regenerate this area in the centre of Halifax with our most sustainable scheme to date.

“We have worked closely with the Combined Authority and Calderdale Council to ensure the scheme delivers the shared objectives of all partners and sets the standard for high quality build-to-rent in Halifax.

“We hope the proposals are well received and look forward to starting work next summer to create new homes for residents.”
