Creating new opportunities
Exciting plans to transform the Northgate site in Halifax town centre have moved a step closer.
Our vision is to create a mixed-use development on the site, including a new sixth form centre and a range of retail, commercial or residential units. This will help achieve the Vision 2024 for Calderdale to be a place where people want to live, learn, work, visit and invest.
Work started on site in late July by contractor Harris CM to clear the former library building. This is an important step forward in a challenging construction programme for the delivery of a new sixth form centre, which is expected be open to students by autumn 2019.
We are working with Trinity Multi-Academy Trust and Rastrick High School on the expanded sixth form offer, which will initially include 600 places for post-16 students from across Calderdale and beyond.
