On behalf of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in partnership with Kirklees Council, we are inviting the public to take part in a consultation on proposals to transform Dewsbury Bus Station and its surroundings.
The proposals include an improved interior, better accessibility for all users and upgraded public entrances and exits, with works expected to take place between late 2022 to early 2024.
The scheme is funded by the Transforming Cities Fund, a major new programme of transport infrastructure investment that aims to help create a positive change in the way we travel across the region, providing an accessible, attractive, and cleaner alternative to car journeys.
During this consultation we will be seeking feedback on initial proposals for transforming the bus station, which will help shape the development of more detailed plans.
More information on the proposals, a survey and FAQs can be found at www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/dewsbury.
The public consultation will be open until Sunday 12 September.
We would be grateful if you could share the link to the consultation page (above) to your networks and through your communication channels, or alternatively people can contact us using the details below. We can also provide organisations with promotional materials, such as posters and leaflets, on request.
If you have any questions or require alternative formats of the consultation materials (including hard copies), please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by writing to Freepost CONSULTATION TEAM (WYCA) or by calling Metroline on 0113 245 7676 between 7am and 8pm Monday to Saturday or 8am to 8pm on Sunday.
If you have questions or would like to submit feedback on the proposals as an organisation or group, you can email us on email@example.com and we will record your comments as part of the consultation or respond to your query.
We will also be hosting a live online presentation and Q&A event to give the opportunity for people to learn more about the proposals and ask their own questions. This will be taking place on Tuesday 7th September from 18:00 - 19:00 and we will be promoting it in communications and on the project webpage leading up to it.
