By relocating 750 Kirklees Council employees to the town centre in the next 5 years, we will increase footfall and support local businesses in the town centre. We will be exploring opportunities for new build and existing property to realise this ambition and make sure the assets we have are attractive to bring in new investors. This could include an office development at the current Cliffe Street Car Park.

We will support the vibrant creative economy around the town by providing a creative hub with self-contained spaces for creative businesses within the town centre. They will be able to take advantage of Fibre Nation's investment in full fibre broadband during 2020 offering full fibre connectivity across the town centre.
