Clr Sims, Kirklees Council’s Cabinet member for regeneration, accepted the award at the Dorchester Hotel.
He said: “This accolade indicates the town’s high standing nationally. It reflects the hard work of our officers across a range of services and the excellent working relationship which Kirklees has with its development partners.”
Clr Sims said: “This award is particularly gratifying as it’s presented by the retail industry itself in recognition of the council’s efforts to make Huddersfield a great place to live, work and shop.”
