Ask Shelley results

Local volunteers from Shelley Community Association, and staff from Kirklees Council and Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, have been talking to people about life in Shelley village. Together we used a tool called the “Place Standard”, which is a way of helping to get conversations going about any place (it could be your street, neighbourhood or town), by using some simple questions. We’d like to say thank you to everyone who took part.
