It states: “The application site is a steeply sloping area of scrubland located within the settlement boundary of Colne.

“The applicants intend the development to be appropriate to its context and see the proposals as an opportunity to improve the character and quality of the area.”

The apartments would be available for private purchase. and would be accessed from Ivegate Mews.
