A NEW campaign HQ for the Tory party is to open in Brighouse.
National chairman Francis Maude will open it on Monday.
It will serve six parliamentary constituencies in Kirklees and Calderdale.
Mr Maude's visit comes after the Tories revealed a new drive to a new drive to capture votes in the North.
A northern campaign group is being set up to try to win more seats across the region.
Mr Maude said: "I am delighted the party has agreed to take this positive step. Our support in the North has been flatlining for too long.
"The creation of campaign centres and the appointment of shadow ministers for the major northern cities were steps in the right direction.
"With the creation of Campaign North we can take the project further. Campaign North now has project directors for the three northern regions.
"We have a growing membership in the North, a growing electoral representation, and now the infrastructure to ensure this performance continues.
"The message is clear: the Conservative Party is back in business in the North."
The Campaign North group will be led by a new Northern Board, chaired by former leader William Hague.
Although the party has just 19 MPs in the North it has a stronger local base, with 1,362 councillors and control of 18 councils.
