  • Grow the economy;
  • reduce inequalities;
  • and build a sustainable future.

We are in a major programme of infrastructure investment, delivering a £180m transport fund programme over the next four years. An active part of the Leeds City Region and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

2024 is an important year for Calderdale. We are excited about Calderdale's future.

  • We have invested in better transport links, including a direct train service from Halifax to London.
