Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council is the local authority for the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire, England. The council styles itself Calderdale Council. It is a metropolitan district council, one of five in West Yorkshire and one of 36 in the metropolitan counties of England.
As a Council, we are ambitious for the future of Calderdale. Recent years have seen some tough times, but there is a great deal of energy, creativity and hope across our borough. There’s an eagerness to rebuild from the pandemic. There’s also an unwavering determination to work together to improve life for all in Calderdale.
n 2024 we will celebrate Calderdale’s 50th anniversary. To work towards this landmark moment in our history, we worked with the community back in 2018 to develop the Vision 2024 for Calderdale. It shapes our work as a Council. It helps us understand what we need to do to make life in Calderdale better for all. Calderdale people are used to working hard; we are also working hard to make the borough a better place.
We have seen unprecedented investment into the revitalisation of our towns, we have built a new Central Library and transformed the Northgate site in Halifax town centre to deliver a flagship sixth form centre and top-class office and retail accommodation – an incredible boost for learning and the local economy.
Tourism has surged, bringing money into the borough, and we are putting our unique heritage and culture at the centre of our regeneration. We are harnessing the distinctiveness of our place and people to become an internationally-recognised destination for culture, tourism and film.
