The Rockcliffe Place site is located to the East of Birdcage Lane and formed part of the formal gardens of Southwood, a large, detached Victorian dwelling presently used as a function hall and meeting rooms. This is between the highly regarded residential areas of Savile Park and Skircoat Green, within the Savile Park conservation area.
Designation of a conservation area does not preclude development, but it requires a recognition of the area's historical value when planning and making decisions about development. It is a way of flagging up the special qualities of an area and the fact that care and thought are needed to ensure that any work carried out preserves existing buildings which make a positive contribution to the character of the area, wherever possible, and that new development or alterations also preserve or enhance the area's character.
Torsion Homes are pleased to be working closely with Calderdale Council to build a development which meets all the criteria and is sensitive to this unique and historical area.
