The scheme

The ‘streets for people’ scheme is funded by the West Yorkshire Local Transport Plan and aims to help create safe and healthy street environments, which work well for all people and help them live active, healthy lives in areas of good air quality.

Around £1 million from this scheme has been allocated to Pontefract to improve the area around Horsefair and develop connectivity between the Town Centre and Pontefract Castle. This includes enhancements to pedestrian accessibility, enrichment to the on-street environment and changes to traffic movement.


Engagement

We believe that the local people living and working in Pontefract know it best. Throughout October 2019 we gave people the opportunity to tell us about how you live, work and visit the area; what is important to you, and how you would like the road between the castle and the town centre ‘Horsefair’ to be made better. This page will be updated as more information on the future of this scheme becomes updated.
