North Halifax- Improved Streets for People

We are asking for feedback on the latest plans which have been changed following public feedback received in Spring 2021. Please take our survey by clicking HERE or the survey button below.

Calderdale Council, in partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, is working to improve walking and cycling journeys in North Halifax.

Making trips on foot, bicycle, scooter or bus, rather than by car, helps improve health and the environment. When we travel in these ways, we lower pollution related to both breathing problems and climate change and improve our own health.

The Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) programme is focused on connecting people in the communities of greatest economic need with job and training opportunities through accessible, attractive and cleaner transport. This will, in turn, help boost productivity, living standards and air quality, helping to create happier healthier communities for the future.

This project aims to make walking and cycling easier and safer and improve access between North Halifax and Halifax town centre. Improving facilities for cycling and walking will help people get to places more easily in North Halifax, including shops, workplaces, health centres and schools. Improved walkways, crossing places and changes to the street to reduce traffic speeds (traffic calming) also aim to encourage people to walk more.

This work is more important than ever, not only as we look to address the health and economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, but also in helping us achieve our aim of becoming a net zero carbon economy by 2038.


Providing an accessible, attractive and cleaner alternative to car journeys is at the heart of the Leeds City Region TCF programme of transport infrastructure investment secured as part of the West Yorkshire devolution deal. It is being delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority in partnership with Calderdale Council and will be funded through the Department for Transport (DfT) plus local match funding.

Improving North Halifax

Through this project, we want to:

  • Create a new cycleway from North Halifax to Halifax town centre

  • Improve pavements and crossing points for walking and cycling

  • Make streets better for walking and cycling, widen pavements and introduce speed restrictions

  • Improve green spaces

  • Improve lighting in areas that feel unsafe and add planting in some snickets and under bridges

Changes since Spring 2021

In September 2020 we conducted a public survey with residents of North Halifax to help us to understand why some people don’t choose to walk or cycle. We then asked for your views on outline plans in Spring 2021 and we have used feedback from the consultation to make many changes to the proposals.

Please refer to our FAQs: 'What's happened so far' to view the changes made.


The current proposals

The proposals are presented in five Zone locations, which are shown on the map below. On this webpage you will find information including plans and pictures to help you understand the proposals and key changes since March 2021. We have also provided answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) which you can find on this webpage. The Zones we are consulting on are:

Zone 1: Dean Clough and Lee Bridge to Ovenden Way via Shroggs Road

Zone 2: Ovenden Way to Cousin Lane

Zone 3: Cousin Lane to Keighley Rd and Snickets between Ovenden Way and Keighley Road

Zone 4: Illingworth

Zone 5: Shay Lane


Please see each zone proposal in the supporting documents

Between 4 November and 19 December 2021, we are asking for your feedback on the proposals. Your views are important, so please tell us what you think.

Next steps

After the public consultation is closed on Sunday 19 December 2021, all feedback will be analysed and considered as we develop the final designs.

When proposals are finalised and approved, a contractor will be appointed, and we expect construction to start around the winter of 2022/2023.
