Take the Halifax Railway Station consultation by January the 30th

The consultation deadline for the proposed Designs for Halifax Railway Station has been extended to Sunday the 30th of January. Please complete the survey and share your views.

www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/hrs 

With over £30m of funding from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, we have the opportunity to transform Halifax Railway Station, improving the travel experience and providing a boost to the local economy.

The station is the sixth busiest in West Yorkshire and served nearly two million rail journeys each year before the pandemic. However, the current station has limited facilities and poor accessibility, which will only get worse if passenger numbers grow as we expect.

Following the feedback from the consultation we held at the beginning of the year, we’ve been able to adapt and further shape the plans for the station and now want to hear from you on these latest designs.

  • Halifax Railway Station ticket office
  • Halifax Central Library

Have your say on Calderdale’s Cultural Strategy

Now is the last chance to have your say in shaping our ambition for Culture in Calderdale.

Our Cultural Strategy will set out a borough-wide commitment, investing in and supporting Culture and the role that it plays in supporting wider economic, social and environment strategies. It is also valuable for the borough and individual organisations in helping to attract external investment into Calderdale. This might be to improve specific cultural venues, deliver borough-wide and year long programmes such as a ‘Year of Culture’ in 2024 and developing Calderdale as a strong tourism destination.We are consulting on Calderdale’s proposed draft Cultural Strategy. We welcome your comments on the draft vision, priorities and themes outlined within the draft strategy to inform and drive investment.
