Ask Honley

We asked you about life in Honley

A team of community volunteers from the village and staff from Kirklees Council were out and about in Honley from 25th October to 20th December 2019. We asked you some questions about what life in Honley is like. We had conversations with community groups, at local meetings and in lots of different community venues. People could also request a home visit or take part online. We’re now sharing the results and talking with people in Honley about which of the ideas to prioritise.

What happens next?

The Friends of Honley planning group will use what we learn to make sure that we pull together an action plan that reflects the priorities identified by Honley’s residents, businesses and local groups. The information can also be used by other organisations in Honley, as part of ongoing conversations about the area.

Join us at a community event

We’re asking people in Honley to help prioritise the issues and ideas so we can create the action plan. Please come along to see the results and share your views on which actions are most important. Everyone is welcome.
