Holmfirth Town Centre is to be transformed

Holmfirth Town Centre 

Investment at last!

On top of the money coming from West Yorkshire Combined Authority to reduce congestion in the town and create a better environment for residents, businesses and visitors, the Council agreed to invest another £1.5m. 

Details of the Town Access Plan can be found here 

Once the design for the changes to the town centre has been developed, the Counil will share details with local people and invite them to share their views on the proposals, before submitting the planning application.  The full business case will be submitted to the West Yorkshire Combined Authority in summer 2021, subject to its approval and securing all necessary consents the Council expects to commence construction early in 2022.

The Small Towns Investment fund will help the town centre transform so it remains a place where people want to spend their time and money, be with others and enjoy themselves.

The Council’s Cabinet, at its meeting held on 16 March, was impressed by the amount of consultation we have carried out over the years and the thought already given to what changes we would like to see happen.  You can watch the meeting by clicking here.

There is a strong commitment from the Council to work in partnership with us to ensure the money is used wisely and on the right things.  It also undertook to carry out more consultation to flesh out the ideas we already have.  These are summarised below:

This is our chance to transform our town centre in the ways we want
