The Cycle Kirklees Consultation Group meets 4 times a year. It is an open public meeting for anyone to attend who already cycles or wishes to participate in consultation meetings. We wish to harness people's local knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to support the development of local cycling opportunities and make Kirklees a place where people choose to cycle.
There is a two-way exchange of information between this group and the Walking and Cycle Kirklees Delivery Group. This is a group of council officers and representatives of key partner organisations that is developing an action plan to get more people cycling and walking in Kirklees.
Meetings and documents
Cycling Infrastructure Group
In spring 2015 a sub-group of the Cycle Kirklees Consultation Group was established, made up of individuals with a particular interest in working with highway engineers to contribute ideas on the design of different elements of cycling schemes in Huddersfield Town Centre.
It meets every 4-6 weeks.

City Connect investment in cycle routes
Leeds City Region has received multi-million pound investment in cycling and walking routes from the Department for Transport.
In Kirklees, a traffic-free route between Bradley and Brighouse will complete this section of the Calder Valley Greenway. In Calderdale there will be improvements to the route from Brighouse on the canal towpath through Elland and Sowerby Bridge to the Upper Calder Valley.
A new cycle route will connect Huddersfield to Golcar using the canal towpath which can be used for commuting and leisure journeys.
Three routes into Huddersfield town centre were already in development as part of the wider Huddersfield Town Centre Access and Connectivity Improvements approved by Cabinet in June 2014. These are from Huddersfield Leisure Centre into town; Trinity Street (A640) into town and from Chapel Hill/ Queen Street South to the University and town centre.
The additional City Connect funding allows more schemes to be developed into and through the town centre.
