The project will provide improved accessibility to the town for all residents and visitors. It will achieve a greater sense of place, deliver regeneration and assist our growth aspirations.
To deliver the proposed improvements for this project, we plan to introduce new Traffic Regulation Orders. These will include changes to parking (disabled, car and motorcycle), changes to bus and taxi stops, introduction of cycle and pedestrian zones, and rerouting of traffic throughout town.
There are a significant number of changes that we plan to introduce so we have mapped these with detailed drawings here. Click on each of the dropped pins for information about the proposed changes and for further detail, click on the drawings available above the description.
At this stage we would welcome your views on these traffic regulation orders. Please send related feedback by 15/02/2019 to proposedTRO@calderdale.gov.uk quoting the above reference in the subject box and including your name and postal address.
Following this informal consultation we will review feedback and make any necessary changes to the proposals. As the project progresses into the construction stage from 2020 we will be back in touch to carry out a formal consultation before we introduce the changes as part of the project.
