    A charity which provides Bradford youngsters with apprenticeship opportunities is looking to undergo a major expansion.

    Appris, based in the Laisterdyke area, is aiming to expand its facilities to provide space for an extra 70 apprentices a week, as well as offering new provisions in fabrication and welding.

    The expansion, which would take place on the corner of Sticker Lane and New Lane, would take the apprentice cohort from 180 places to 250 and would provide three full-time jobs.

    A decision on whether to approve the plans will take place later this month.
