A NEW planning application has been submitted for a Conservation Area, after a similar scheme was refused earlier this year.

In July Bradford Council refused a retrospective planning application for alterations to 69 Main Street in Haworth that included the creation of a former window in the attic.

It was part of works to turn the upper floors of a coffee shop in the building into flats.

Council officers said the dormer would harm the appearance of the Haworth Conservation Area.

New a new application for the building has been submitted.

Retrospective plans for dormer on listed, Haworth Conservation Area building are refused

In this new plan, submitted by Paul Taylor, the dormer window will be removed and replaced with skylight windows. The application adds: "We believe the conservation style skylights will comply with the council’s house extension policy and not unduly harm the conservation area."

A decision is expected in early December.
