PLANS to build 40 new homes in Addingham have been made available for public comment.

William Brear and Son Ltd has applied for permission from Bradford Council to build the mix of flats, three, four and five-bedroom house, including social housing, on land at The Acres.

The proposed development, tentatively named Wharfe Park, includes four bungalows, five or six two-bedroom houses, and six one-bedroom flats, for affordable housing.

If planning permission is granted, the other houses will be sold on the open market

A social housing provider which owns existing properties nearby is said to have expressed an interest in acquiring some of all of the affordable housing provision in the new development.

In a design and access statement, Don MacRae, of Allison & MacRae Chartered Architects, said: "The proposed design seeks to create an area with a distinct identity, a coherent element making a positive contribution to the larger village."

Meetings have taken place between the developer and Addingham Parish Council, and answered questions from members of the public.
