The preliminary application proposes a “light industrial building” divided into four employment units totaling 2,175 square meters on the brownfield site near Brinsworth Street.
The application site is between Brinsworth Street to the west and the site of the former Liquid nightclub to the north, which closed in 2012.

The application documents state: “The proposed building is to the south of the site and parking and services are proposed to the north.
“It is proposed that the buildings have access doors on the north site for access and maintenance.
“Open land is retained along the Holmes Tail Goit to the north and east towards the railway line.
“An employment use is considered the best use for the site in question and will bring employment and regeneration to the location.
“It is considered that the development of the subject site will also be a catalyst for the redevelopment of the remaining parts of MU9, and help turn this land into a prosperous economic use.
“A comprehensive suite of technical documents supports the application in terms of highways, flood risk and drainage, soil conditions and ecology.
“There are no technical constraints that should prevent development from being permitted.”
The land has been designated for “mixed use” in the RMBC local plan.
