A £14.4m investment in the heart of Huddersfield will see the Kingsgate Shopping Centre extended to create a new leisure destination. This will include a multi-screen cinema complex and 6 restaurant units (2,911 sq m). The retail unit operated by Next will be enlarged by 1,949 sq m.
Kirklees Council has resolved to grant full planning permission and Listed Building Consent for the Kingsgate Leisure scheme, which when operational is expected to generate 259 jobs and contribute to the vitality and viability of Huddersfield town centre.
The developer will help fund highway works in Cross Church Street that will improve the pedestrian and cyclist experience, upgrade the streetscape, enhance the setting of listed buildings, and make a positive contribution to the Conservation Area.
