The thriving West Yorkshire market town of Hebden Bridge, close to the Penine Way, attracts 125,000 visitors a year and, as a result, has run out of car-parking spaces. This site, which had been vacant since the 1960s, is set on a tiered slope with a retaining wall in the heart of the town's conservation area. The planning issues are complicated and sensitivity has been integral at all levels.

The design for the proposed seven-storey development is clad in local stone and offers 160 parking spaces, a hidden car stacker system, 48 residential properties and eight retail units.

The foundation design incorporates a bored piled wall to form a double storey basement, and a concrete slab ground to act as support for the superstructure. Shops at street level will be concrete frame. As a fast, economically viable solution, a modular timber frame has been chosen for the residential units above.

A flood risk assessment, balancing the volume of construction against the volume of rainfall, has ensured that the development will not create flooding in the town centre.
