FURTHER details of the green benefits of a proposed £60m mixed-used development in Hipperholme have been revealed.
Developer Crosslee Properties has worked with experts to create a multi-functional green infrastructure framework and landscape strategy at the former factory site on Brighouse Road.
It proposes several green benefits for the development and local community, including healthy living, electric car charging and extensive greenery.
Nearby walks are integral to the layout, with two areas of woodland connected by native tree planting and a footpath connecting the residential area into the woodland.
There is also a cycle lane and a natural children's play area with log piles is included in the plan.
Electric vehicle charging facilities will be available at all Crosslee Park properties alongside communal EV charging in car parks and an onsite EV car club.
Almost two thirds of the existing woodland to the north and east of the Crosslee Park development will be retained as part of the plans.
The 27-acre development includes 106 homes, a care home and retirement village, employment and commercial space and a supermarket.
Outline plans were submitted in May and the scheme is due to be heard by Calderdale Council’s planners in the coming months.
