The site consists of part of a former mill complex which was extensively fire damaged in December 2010, the site having been cleared to remove the remnants of the remaining fire damaged buildings.

It is currently Grade II listed.

The proposal provides seven light industrial units with all of the units broadly of a similar size to provide an attractive proposition for business start-ups, sole traders and trade counters.

The built form is set back from the road providing a forecourt area for servicing and parking with pedestrian and vehicular access adjacent to Kent Street.

A new access is proposed to allow vehicles to traverse one-way through the site and exit.

Externally, the units will consist of composite insulated metal roof and wall cladding with windows over low level brickwork, ground floor openings for each unit designed to accommodate a security shutter and, where requested, internal glazed door and frame alongside a secure personal door.

12 new car parking spaces are also included in the plans.

The plans propose a total on 530 sqm of new floor space.

The agent for the proposal is Aamir Design Ltd but it is not yet known when the plans will be discussed by the planning committee.
