The residential-led mixed-use development also includes plans for a new local centre, a primary school, health facilities, leisure uses, a sports pitch and associated open space. The plans form part of the New Bolton Woods scheme.
A hybrid application for the scheme was submitted to Bradford Metropolitan District Council by Canal Road Urban Village Ltd (CRUVL), a joint venture partnership created by regeneration specialists Urbo and the local authority.
It included outline plans for the residential-led mixed-use development, as well as a full application for the demolition of buildings and principal means of access from Canal Road.
A planning report said that in terms of the planning balance there are "are clear regeneration benefits associated with this proposal".
"These include securing a substantial number of new houses planned as part of a masterplan approach in a most sustainable location, much of which is on previously developed land," it added.
"The proposals will significantly help to address the district’s acute shortage of housing land, evidenced by a failure to demonstrate a deliverable five year housing land supply."
Jon Suckley, partner at consultancy HOW Planning, which advised on the scheme, added: "Approval of these plans will enable Urbo Regeneration to bring forward what is a hugely exciting development and a fantastic prospect for Bradford. It will not only provide new housing, community facilities and a new local centre but it will create a thriving new district for the city."
