Site Overview

The site extends to 1.67 acres (0.66 Ha) and is positioned within the heart of Baildon town centre, as edged red on the Site Location Plan found in the ‘Documents and Downloads’ section. The opportunity consists of a former Mill complex, the original Mill pond and areas of hardstanding (utilised mainly for car parking). The oldest parts of the site date back to the early 19th Century, the original block (labelled A & D on the Proposed Site Plan Refurb located in the ‘Documents and Downloads’ section) is Grade II Listed. A newer large portal framed warehouse and attached 3 storey building (constructed in the 19070’s/80’s) has now been demolished.

Baildon is a well-regarded village situated approximately 7km Northeast of Bradford, 16km Northwest of Leeds and 20.5km southeast of Skipton. The village benefits from a wide range of convenience retail, leisure and educational facilities, many of which are situated adjacent to the site. Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage site, located 1km southwest of the site offers a wide range of leisure activities including the renowned Salts Mill arts and culture attraction. The locally renowned ‘Baildon Moor’ is situated 200m from the opportunity, offering breathtaking Yorkshire open countryside on the doorstep. A regular rail service to Ilkley and Bradford Forster Square stations is available from the nearby station (600m) every half an hour, and the village also benefits from regular bus links to the surrounding conurbations. 


The land benefits from Full Planning Consent for the conversion, alteration (including partial demolition) and replacement of a garage block for 42 residential units (TP ref:16/06606/MAF), granted 31st August 2017) together with the construction of 9 new build units (TP Ref: 18/02782/FUL).
