Additional Information

Mr Benn had submitted plans for six stone-built, single storey lock-up shops to be built in the spaces under the railway arch in Bradford Road. The Bradford Road passes under the railway line at an angle. The developer originally proposed to erect two shops, one on either side of the road, at the southern end of the viaduct (I.e the Huddersfield side) and four at the northern end (two on each side of the road) the Bradford side.

A letter from Mr Benn, indicates that it is his understanding that that the Corporation has an interest in acquiring three of the four corners, and expresses his willingness to waive his claim, if he is allowed to develop the remaining lock-up shops shown in his plans.
