FOURTEEN local groups for art, sport, heritage and community work have received lottery grants.
Among the recipients is the Kirklees Theatre Trust which has received £4,300. The group manages the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Queen Street, Huddersfield.
The cash will be spent on a survey and feasibility study for creating new office space in an empty building next door.
The trust would rent the building from Kirklees Council.
Lesley Jackson, general manager of the LBT, said:
"The plan is in its infancy.
"Now that we have this grant we are hoping to move on the study in the New Year and we will have a better idea of what to do."
