Calderdale is being transformed. Calderdale Council’s aspiration is to grow the economy, reduce inequality and build a sustainable future.

We’re involving you in our aspiration by sharing all of the work that is taking Calderdale to the ‘Next Chapter’ through over £150 million investment. This investment will improve our transport, public spaces and business premises, building on our heritage, our fine architecture, our vibrant business sector and our strong communities.

This website will tell you all about our current and planned work in Calderdale, how we’re progressing with the work and where it’s happening. It also gives an insight into the future of Calderdale, one that is an even better place to live and work.
