The Board's main aims are to promote and support the investment case for the town centre and local area. Their work comes at a critical time, with the town set to benefit from a high level of investment.

They have given support and guidance to help secure £6.3 million from the Government's Future High Street Fund. Also, an agreement to build a station link to Elland.
