£150 million Annual Economic Benefit
Boosting economic activity
Our vision for Calderdale is to be an attractive place where people are prosperous, healthy and safe, supported by excellent services. It's a place where we value everyone being different and, through our actions, we can demonstrate that everyone matters.
The Halifax town centre investment as part of the West Yorkshire-plus Transport Fund will focus on, improving connectivity, enhancing our urban realm and providing the means to develop previously undeveloped areas of the town.
The Council also continues to invest in Halifax, bringing forward significant investment schemes through the Halifax Town Centre Delivery Plan.
The plan provides an objective view of the strengths and weaknesses of the town and gathers the requirements and aspirations of local residents, cultural and commercial groups, to arrive at a deliverable vision for economic regeneration within Halifax town centre.
The plan identifies the key sites where the most gainful development can be taken forward and provides a vision for the town and a pipeline of development priorities for the Council to focus on in the short, medium and longer term.

The delivery plan provides a roadmap for regeneration within Halifax for the Council. It provides a long term focus for regeneration, protecting our historic and cultural assets, improving prosperity and ensuring that Halifax remains a jewel in the crown of West Yorkshire.
As part of our Town Centre Office Strategy we renovated the beautiful Princess Buildings in Halifax Town Centre. In May 2018 we were honoured with an award in recognition of our success from the Halifax Civic Trust.
