Background 


Harrogate Borough Council, North Yorkshire County Council and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority are working together to deliver an exciting £7.9m worth of improvements which will benefit residents, business and visitors alike. 

Providing an accessible, attractive and cleaner alternative to car journeys is at the heart of Leeds City Region’s Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) - a major new £317 million TCF programme of transport infrastructure investment secured as part of the West Yorkshire devolution deal, plus local match funding. 

Building the future we want with a transport system fit for the 21st century is absolutely vital, not only as we look to pave a way forward for our region following the COVID-19 pandemic, but also in tackling climate change by helping us achieve our aim of becoming a net zero carbon economy by 2038. 

Our scheme development journey


In 2019, we undertook a study into a new inner relief road within Harrogate. The public feedback did not support this approach to changing Harrogate’s transport network. Instead, there was greater support for implementing more sustainable transport measures, including better provision for walking and cycling, and improved public transport access.


Building on this outcome, we have been developing new options, through the TCF programme, for improving walking and cycling access to rail and bus services and reducing general traffic within the town centre. Your feedback on our current options will help shape the designs and we intend to consult on a final design later this year.


Improving Harrogate


We want to use this investment to:


  • Improve transport connections to the town centre and public transport stations, giving people better access to jobs, education, healthcare and leisure facilities
  • Reduce the carbon emissions associated with transport to help address climate change
  • Support the regeneration of the Station Parade area of the town
  • Improve public health and wellbeing

We want to achieve the following objectives:


  • Improve the walking and cycling links to Harrogate bus and railway stations and the town centre
  • Increase the number of people traveling to or from Harrogate Station and in and around Harrogate town centre by environmentally friendly transport (bus, on foot and by bike)
  • Positively enhance the sense of place within the town centre and create a higher quality environment for visitors, residents and nature

The Proposals


The proposals are focused on Station Parade and adjoining streets. On this webpage you will find information including plans and visualisations to help you understand what is proposed. We have also provided answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).


If you have questions about the scheme which are not covered by the information provided in the Consultation Materials, you can submit your question via the ‘Questions’ tab (below).

Next Steps 


Following the close of the public consultation on 24 March, all feedback will be considered as the designs evolve. There will be more opportunities to provide feedback on evolving and improved plans later in 2021 before we submit a planning application and request funding to begin construction.
