The old Bankfield House site on Banks Road has been vacant for quite a while now. Long enough in fact for several clean ups to have taken place although it's still a bit overgrown and littered.
Years ago there was planning permission for housing there. It must have lapsed by now.
But there seems to be some movement with another application coming in to the Council (may well be the same sort of details).
You can have a look at it at this link. As ever the bulk of the info is in the Related Documents section. The comments facility isn't up yet but you should be able to comment on the plans when it is.
