Feedback is now being analysed and a report will be published to this web page. All feedback will help shape the future development of more detailed designs, which will be brought back for further public consultation. The information below was presented during the public consultation between Thursday 22 July to Sunday 12 September 2021.




The West Yorkshire Combined Authority, in partnership with Kirklees Council, is seeking feedback on a proposed transformation of the Dewsbury Bus Station building and its surroundings; including an improved interior, better accessibility for all bus station users and upgraded public entrances and exits.


In this public consultation we will be seeking feedback on initial proposals for the bus station, which will help shape the development of more detailed plans.


Improvements in Dewsbury Town Centre

The Dewsbury Bus Station proposals are the first stage of a wider package to transform the way people travel in and around the town, including better walking and cycling access between the station and the town centre. There will be a separate consultation regarding the proposed improvements in Dewsbury Town Centre later in the autumn.


Scheme aims

To encourage more people in and around Dewsbury to use public transport, the proposals aim to:

  • Transform passenger facilities and enhance customer experience
  • Improve accessibility and safety for all bus station users
  • Upgrade retail experience at the bus station
  • Help regenerate Dewsbury town centre and make it easier for people to travel between the town centre and the station
  • Boost walking and cycling access to make these forms of transport more attractive
  • Make the bus station more energy efficient
