Investment boost for Beech Hill, Halifax

Investment boost for Beech Hill, Halifax

Together Housing have announced that the The Beech Hill area of Halifax is set to benefit from an investment of over £300k, after they submitted a successful bid to the government’s Estate Regeneration Fund in partnership with Calderdale Council.

Community and local organisations have identified that parts of the area would benefit from regeneration, and Together Housing and the Council, have been pursuing options for improvement for some time.

Previous consultation exercises with the local community have identified areas which would particularly benefit from improvement, such as the three tower blocks, the Council’s Highways depot and the existing housing.

The funding will be used for site investigation, feasibility and design work, and activity with local communities and other interested parties, to produce a detailed, ready to go, scheme.

Over 100 areas across the country are receiving a share of the £32 million Estate Regeneration Fund, but Calderdale is the only West Yorkshire council to receive this funding.

Hilary Brady, Group Head of Development at Together Housing Group said: 

“Together Housing Group has been working with Calderdale Council over a period of time to look at regeneration options within the Beech Hill area.  We’ve worked with the local community and listened to their concerns and ideas about improvements.  This funding will help us move forward in looking at what is feasible and assess further opportunities for the area.”

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning, Housing and Environment, Cllr Daniel Sutherland, added:

“The Beech Hill area of Halifax has many positives; it has a strong community and is well located close to local amenities and transport links. However, it’s fair to say that the area would benefit further from investment, and this funding will be used to further develop previous plans for the area.

“We’ve been looking at the regeneration of this area for some time, but this extra funding means we can continue to pursue our ideas – improving the quality of life for those living in this area.”
