“This decision and debate is of huge significance and importance to Kirklees, its businesses and the people who live here.
The council has a vital role to play in creating the right conditions for our local economy to thrive, ensuring Kirklees is a great place to live, work and invest. That’s exactly what we’re aiming to achieve with this plan.
This is a plan for everyone in Kirklees so we’re urging people to tune-in via the council’s website to learn more about our ambitions and how we plan to achieve them.”
