PLANS to repair and alter an industrial unit damaged by fire have been approved by Bradford Council.

In April 2017 a fierce blaze gutted a 1,598 square metre unit on a site off Great Horton Road, called Cragg Mills.

At its height eight engines were dealing with the fire.

The incident left the building’s large roof badly damaged, and the unit has not been used since.

Earlier this year S.K. Imports submitted a planning application to repair the building. The plans included raising and altering the roof from its original state.

Application says the aim is to use the building for storage once again.

The application has now been approved by officers at Bradford Council.
