Planning application 2023/92891 (click on application number to go to full application on Kirklees planning website)   

There was no facility for responding to this particular application so an email was sent to the Planning Officer dealing with the application who responded, saying: “Applications for advertisement consent are not required to seek representations under current legislation and so we have not got a facility for receiving representations on those.

“The proposal has been reviewed by the Conservation and Design Officer and we are seeking modifications to the scheme in due course to have greater regard for Policy LP17: ‘Retain and refurbish traditional shop fronts wherever practicable’ and to have a more traditional appearance for a Listed Building with Huddersfield Town Centre Conservation Area. Hopefully I shall receive an amended plan prior to the initial target date of 23rd November.”
