Have your say and help shape the future of Dewsbury
Dewsbury is eligible to receive up to £25 million of funding as part of the Government's Towns Fund. This significant investment could drive economic, cultural and social benefits for the town. We are inviting residents to share their views on how this exciting opportunity can be used to deliver regeneration, improved skills and better travel and digital connectivity around Dewsbury. On this website you can have your say to shape the future of our town.

Please explore this website and complete our survey to tell us your priorities for this funding. In order to make sure this funding meets local needs and has the biggest impact on improving our communities, we need to understand local issues and priorities. Our interactive map plots out some initial projects the Town’s Fund can help us unlock or speed up, including several schemes we mentioned at the launch of the Dewsbury Blueprint.

Because of the events surrounding COVID-19, this is the first opportunity to share with you the emerging ideas and opportunities. These ideas cover the town and the surrounding rural community as outlined in our interactive map. The Dewsbury Town Board, which is a group of local community and business representatives, facilitated by Kirklees Council, will guide the delivery of projects funded through the Towns Fund. Following the initial stage of consultation, we will publish the Town Deal which will be submitted to Government in early 2021.
