PLANS to build a house on a plot of Thornton land have been approved, but Councillors say they need to see details of the development before it is built.

An outline application for a house on land next to 34 Sapgate Lane went before members of Bradford Council's Regulatory and Appeals Committee on Thursday, where members heard that there had been numerous objections to the plans.

Objectors said the cobbled road was incapable of coping with the extra traffic a house would bring, that construction of the house would cause noise and that "residents like the area as it is."

Planning officers had suggested the application be approved, and told members planning permission for a house on the site had been granted in 1989, but the development never began, and that permission has now lapsed.

The application was only in the outline stage - asking for permission to develop the site, with further detail to be included in a future application.

Chair Councillor David Warburton said there was little detail in the plan, comparing it to "a square on a piece of paper."

He added: "It is very important that this build fits in with the surrounding area."

Members voted to approve the plans, but that the more detailed application also go back before the committee.
