Cleckheaton ward councillors and Kirklees Council staff asked local people what they think of Cleckheaton town centre now, and what they’d like to see in the future. We used a tool called the “Place Standard” which encourages conversations about any place, using some simple questions. Working with local partners, we will use the results to help with planning how to invest in Cleckheaton town centre, to reflect local people’s priorities. We’d like to say thank you to everyone who took part.
We talked with people in lots of different places. We talked with people in the town centre at Cheapside, Cleckheaton Library, and in the market. We also listened to views at Sykes Fold coffee morning, had sessions at Springfield House and Church Grange, as well as on the Wellness Bus and at the Farmer’s Market. 253 people took part online.

What happens next?
Based on what we’ve learned from citizens, in late Spring or early Summer 2022 we’ll be taking the next step and asking more people in Cleckheaton to get involved, to help prioritise the issues and ideas. Anyone in Cleckheaton who would like to take part is very welcome to join in. Kirklees Council, local councillors and partners will then use what we learn to help create an action plan.
If you’d like to find out more or get involved, or if you have any questions, you can phone 01484 221000 (Kirklees Council) and ask for Sue Ginty, or email Susan.Ginty@kirklees.gov.uk
