How do you feel about Huddersfield town centre?
Everyone has their own experience of a place. How do you feel about Huddersfield town centre now, and what are your hopes for the future?
Staff from Kirklees Council and local volunteers are out and about in the town centre this summer. We’re asking visitors, residents, businesses, shoppers, students and local organisations how you feel about Huddersfield town centre.
We’re using a tool called the Place Standard. This is a way of helping to get conversations going about any place (it could be your street, neighbourhood or town), by using some simple questions.
It’s an opportunity for you to give your overall impressions of a place, including things like how easy it is to get around, whether you feel connected to other people in the area, and whether you feel safe.
We’re working with citizens, councillors and partner organisations to have the same kind of conversation in lots of our local places – wherever people are interested in having the conversations. So it’s not just happening in Huddersfield.
