A NEW hand car wash could be built on part of the site of a car sales lot if new plans are approved.

An application submitted to Bradford Council would see a section of Runswick Motor Co on the corner of Manchester Road and Runswick Street become a car wash, creating an extra two full time jobs.

Development of shops and flats planned for car wash site on Leeds Road

The application, by Usman Nawaz Khan, says: “Due to a decline in car sales and the overall site capacity the cars can be showcased to a lesser extent than what is currently on offer.

“The site offers ample off street parking and has a very easy access and egress point on Manchester Road. The proposed change of use will also provide a number of jobs.”

A covered valeting bay would be built on the site if the plans are approved.

A decision on the application is expected in April.
