INDUSTRIAL units could be built on the site of a former weaving mill.

Plans have been submitted to Bradford Council to construct two, two-storey units on land in West Lane, Keighley.

The site was once home to Devonshire Mills, built in 1909.

But the mill was demolished in 2005, and the plot has been disused since.

If approved, the development would create 640 square metres of warehouse space.

It would be in the north-west corner of the site.

The planning application, submitted by Keighley-based building company Terra Firma, says much of the land would "remain unchanged".

A decision on the scheme is expected to be made by planners early next month.

The land has a long history regarding proposed developments.

Numerous different applications to build homes on the site have been approved over the years, but work on the various projects has never materialised.

In 2021, an application to convert the site into a waste and recycling sorting business was submitted to Bradford Council.

The plan proved to be controversial, with over 200 people objecting, and it was turned down.
