As fears grow about the future and current condition of Huddersfield’s town centre, we urge you to join us at this talk which will outline proposals for a Business Improvement District (BID) for Huddersfield.
Vernon O’Reilly, Piazza Centre Manager and Chairman of the Huddersfield Partnership, will outline how BIDs have, in a variety of towns and cities across the UK, halted decline, brought new life and vitality to town centres and, above all, have enabled practical improvements of the streetscape, environment and aspects of safety to be implemented.
A chance to enjoy a full days outing comprising a guided tour of the National Stone Centre at Wirksworth, a tour of Cromford Mills, internationally recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and ending in the attractive town of Matlock.
