Council seeks feedback on plans to transform Huddersfield Bus Station

People are being asked for their views on plans to transform Huddersfield Bus Station, as part of a £32m package of transport improvements in the town being delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Kirklees Council.

The plans for the bus station include better passenger facilities and access, new cycle storage, and environmental measures, such as solar panels.

The proposals are part of a wider package of funding to make it easier to travel in and around Huddersfield by public and active transport, which is being delivered with money from the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund, which helps towns and cities to encourage walking, cycling and public transport use, and match funding from Kirklees Council.

Cllr 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.’

The consultation is running until 12 September.

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.’

In related news, people in Leeds are being encouraged to give feedback on an action plan for the future regeneration of Mabgate, to explore the area’s potential for growth.
