Find out about the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund programme, a major new programme of investment that aims to create a step change in travel across the region.

North Yorkshire County Council, Harrogate Borough Council, Craven District Council, Selby District Council and West Yorkshire Combined Authority have been successful in a bid to secure £31m for projects in Selby, Skipton and Harrogate town centres, through the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund.

The project is part of the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund programme, a major new programme of investment that aims to create a step change in travel across the region. This investment will also help ‘level up’ the UK economy and redistribute wealth, jobs and investment more equitably across the four nations. This investment forms part of a much wider plan to tackle the climate crisis and deliver a more sustainable future for the region.

In each town, a major package of investment will improve opportunities for sustainable travel and link transport hubs with centres of education and employment – all essential to getting back on track after the Covid-19 pandemic. This is a once in a generation chance to totally re-design parts of the town centres, with investment that will help to fire up the engine on the journey to recovery.

We want to know what you think about the proposals and will be hosting a series of online events where you can hear more and ask questions, before completing an online survey when the consultation opens on 24 February 2021.
