A £94,000 work programme to boost Dalton has been given the go-ahead.

Kirklees cabinet members approved a programme of Streetscene works around the library and community centre.

The improvements are: new paving on the footway at the junction of Ridgeway and Harpe Inge, new paving off Ridgeway at the entrance to the Dram Centre and signs to the Dram centre.

There will be footway improvements on Arkenmore, as part of enhancing the area around the library and Dram Centre.

The council also wants to improve pedestrian safety through the work.

Clr Peter McBride, cabinet member for place, said: “This area has been completely transformed in the last 10 years as a result of investment by the council.”

The programme of works will be carried out in Dalton under Kirklees Council’s Small Centre Improvement programme.

The programme will cost £98,000 and the shortfall of £4,000 will come from Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing from their budget for the Dalton Neighbourhood Focus. Work is set to begin next month.
