Plans to build 129 new homes in Kettlethorpe have been approved.

Catalogue firm Redcats has been awarded planning permission to build houses on part of its site on Standbridge Lane, Kettlethorpe.

The homes will replace an old warehouse, which was demolished in 2009.

The company still occupies another building on the land, which will remain in use.

It said it did not receive any objections from neighbours and the empty land, along with the outline planning permission, will be sold to a developer.

Redcats UK continues to employ around 300 people in Wakefield at its warehouse site in Kettlethorpe and the customer contact centre, which relocated from Horbury Road to Navigation Walk in 2010.
