Our Cultural Heart Kirklees

We are very pleased to have our scheme for the cultural centre of Huddersfield recognised at the Planning Awards in the Placemaking category with an Award for fostering a healthy town centre.

Our Cultural Heart is a flagship council-led regeneration scheme which forms part of a wider blueprint for Huddersfield Town Centre. The ‘blueprint’ is a ten-year vision to create a thriving, modern day town centre: a vibrant culture, art, leisure and nightlife offer, thriving businesses, a great place to live, improved access and enhanced public spaces. It's a masterclass in thoughtful, inclusive design, genuine and thorough stakeholder consultation and how to generate substantial benefits across the spectrum. The end result is a town centre scheme that the people of Huddersfield will be proud of and will benefit from hugely.
