Green light for £30m North Yorkshire mixed-use scheme

DEVELOPERS have been given the green light for a £30m North Yorkshire housing scheme.

Skipton-based developer Candelisa is developing the Station Works scheme in Cononley near Skipton, converting the former Green’s Mill into 46 apartments.

It will be building a further 46 new houses on the adjoining brownfield site, and 15,500 sq ft of employment space will also be created.

Guy Taylor, managing director of Candelisa said: “We are delighted that planning permission has been granted and we look forward to working with the parish council and the local community to deliver a successful scheme for all stakeholders which addresses the chronic shortage of housing in this area. The inclusion of a significant amount of employment space is also good news for the area.

“Meanwhile our plans for the historic mill will preserve it for future generations and the open space provision ensures the Green family will be forever linked to the site.”

Candelisa is also working on Firth Mill in Skipton which is being converted into apartments and new build projects in Eastburn, Sutton-in-Craven and Skipton.
