The Huddersfield Blueprint: Civic Quarter
The Huddersfield Blueprint ten-year vision for the town centre was officially launched on 26 June.
Keeping you updated
Throughout the week, we’ve been updating you on our plans for each area and the final instalment is Civic Quarter.
What is the Civic Quarter?
Civic Quarter is an area which includes the current site of the Civic Centre buildings, Magistrates’ Court, Police Station and the Bus Station. Buildings in this area are influential sites and spaces. This means that enhancements to improve access for people using the services are necessary.
What areas will be improved?
Huddersfield Bus Station is one of the areas we’ve identified to make improvements to. We’d like to introduce food, drink and pop-up shops as well as create additional parking. We also intend to improve the route between the Bus Station and Civic Quarter and Huddersfield Train Station, making it more pedestrian-friendly.
Finally, in our long-term ambition, we’re also considering introducing new housing, bringing a new vibrant energy to the Civic Quarter.
