People can find out more about plans to transform Huddersfield Bus Station – and ask questions of the project team behind them.

Two online consultation events are being held on Wednesday September 1 (6pm-7pm) and Friday September 3 (1pm-2pm).

Proposals to improve the bus station are part of a £32 million package of transport improvements in the town being delivered in partnership by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Kirklees Council.

Plans for the bus station include a canopy roof with living grass. Inside it could house a GP’s surgery or a clinic.

Each of the online sessions will include a presentation about the plan, followed by an opportunity to ask the project team questions.

Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, said: “In my manifesto, I committed to improving public transport, connecting more people with opportunities and helping tackle the climate emergency on our way to becoming a net zero carbon economy by 2038.

“That is why I am delighted people are being given the opportunity to shape these plans to transform Huddersfield Bus Station.”

Clr Peter McBride, Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Kirklees Council, said: “I am pleased to see that the people of Kirklees have yet another opportunity to shape the future of our town centres.

“The transformation of Huddersfield Bus Station is a vital step to improving connectivity in the town and complements our ambitious Blueprint plans. I encourage people to take a look at the plans and have their say on this exciting development.” 

These proposals are part of a wider package to make it easier for people to travel in and around Huddersfield by bus, train, bike and on foot.   

The schemes are being delivered with money from the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund, which is helping to transform gateways to towns and cities across the region by making it easier to walk, cycle and use public transport, and match funding from Kirklees Council. 

The consultation is open until Sunday September 12. To have your say or register for the online consultation sessions CLICK HERE
