Undercliffe Housing Plans Revealed

An application to build homes on the brownfield site has been submitted to Bradford Council.

A development of 25 family homes could be built on the site of a former residential home.

Social housing provider Incommunities first announced plans to close Sycamore Court, off Otley Road, Undercliffe, in 2015. The group began re-housing residents shortly after.

The organisation was granted permission to demolish the building last year.

At the time they said the plan was to redevelop the site with housing, and this week an application to build homes on the brownfield site has been submitted to Bradford Council.

The development will include nine four-bed homes and 16 three-bed homes, all of which will be for social rent.

The planning application says: “The proposed housing will provide high quality affordable housing and help with the sustainability of schools, shops and other services in the local area.

“As the site is within walking distance from the heart of Bradford, it will potentially help to increase the foot count in the city centre where shopping outlets, employment, and entertainment venues are located.

“Overall it is the intention that the new development will improve the built environment when compared with the now dated housing and older buildings in the area.”

The development will include 45 car parking spaces.

A decision on the application will be made in May
