QAD were commissioned to prepare an outline plot replacement proposals and a planning submission for 48no. residential dwellings on Huddersfield Road, Holmfirth. The proposed scheme comprised of an equal split of affordable and market value properties including a mixture of town houses and cottages. The style of housing is in keeping with the local character with the use of traditional materials and detailing.

‘‘I have finally had chance to have a more detailed look at the proposals and I have to say it is difficult to add more value to the proposal. As I suggested in the meeting the proposal is well thought out and respect has been paid to the details of the surrounding area without over egging it…. Overall it is good to see the amount of well located and accessed POS, good views into and out of, good legibility in the layout, tree retention and footpaths to the river environment.’’ Nigel Hunston – Group Leader Conservation and Design, Kirklees Metropolitan Council.
