A planning application for the construction of 49 new affordable homes in a small village in West Yorkshire has been approved by councillors.
A two-storey residential building will be built on a former sports field in Healy, part of the district of Batley in Kirklees.
The much needed new build properties are to be built in response to high demand for affordable housing, according to the application submitted by PC Limited and Yorkshire Housing.
Councillor Paul Kane, who chaired the sub-committee, told the press: "They [the new homes] are for people from our community to be able to live in. I definitely support this application."
The planned development in Healy is the latest in a long line of residential projects to be approved in West Yorkshire this year.
Only last week, Persimmon Homes and Crosslee PLC were given the green light to develop 147 new homes on vacant land next to Crosslee in the Calderdale village of Hipperholme.
According to the plans, Persimmon Homes and Crosslee Plc want to build five five-bedroom houses; 47 four-bedroom; 20 three-bedroom detached; 60 three-bedroom semi-detached and terraced and 15 two-bedroom homes.
In total there will be 13 different housing styles. Some will have internal garages and three different types of brick will be used.
