Repurposing vacant Yorkshire mills could create nearly 9,000 homes, Historic England has said.
The organization said in a new report that there are currently 237 underused mills in the area which could become homes, workplaces or cultural spaces.
The report said there was space for 15,400 homes on land, and enough space in existing mills for almost 30,000 jobs if transformed into workspaces. There is more than 8 million sq ft of unused floor space in mills.
Historic England’s report has been presented to the Northern Culture All-Party Parliamentary Group.
MP Jason McCartney, the group’s vice chair, told the media that conversions could “make a valuable contribution to the community”.
Repurposing the historic mills also offer a greener alternative than new build developments.
