Tourist accommodation planned for the Eldwick Farm site
TOURIST accommodation could be built on a farm in Eldwick if new plans are approved.
A planning application to demolish the stables at Higher Heights Farm and replace them with a new four bedroom accommodation building has been submitted to Bradford Council.
The site is in the green belt, but the application says the building will replace the “unsightly” stables and have a similar footprint to the buildings it will replace.
The farm is a five minute walk from Eldwick and a short distance from Bingley.
The application, submitted by the Lindley family, states: “It is considered that the development will lead to a significant visual improvement to the site through the removal of a number of architecturally poor buildings, which are unsightly, with a new building which is of high -quality contemporary design.

“While the building is contemporary, it has been designed to reflect the history of the site.
“The proposal will also boost the rural economy through the provision of tourism-related development, with occupants contributing to the local economy, as well as local businesses that will be employed during the construction of the building.”
A decision on the application is expected in June.
