Our towns, villages and communities are the strength of Kirklees – and local people have asked us to do more to recognise this.

Our citizens want to have more of a conversation about what matters in our places, and more of a voice in what happens here. We know this through the work of the Kirklees Democracy Commission.

So we’re working with citizens and colleagues to make sure that everyone has a stake in the place where they live, work or visit.

Find out more about what we’re doing and why, and see some examples of what’s happening in our local places:
