Public meeting over Queensgate Revival
A PUBLIC meeting on plans to redevelop part of Huddersfield town centre will be held on Wednesday.
The Queensgate Revival project takes in the site covering the public library, market hall, piazza, multi- storey car park and surrounding area. The meeting - at 7pm at the Media Centre in Northumberland Street - will be chaired by Kirklees Council Cabinet's member for regeneration, Clr Ken Sims.
He said: "I hope people will come to the meeting. They will have another opportunity to ask questions about the proposals, get more information and give us their views and comments. "This is the biggest and most exciting development proposal for Huddersfield for many years and it is extremely important that we know what people think.
"It is their town and any development will shape its future for decades. The money would be provided by the developers and would be at no cost the council tax payer."
Consultation over the last month has included a week-long outdoor exhibition in front of the library, before it went inside the library and art gallery building. People can register their comments on-line www.kirklees.gov.uk/queensgate , or write Freepost to Kirklees Talkback, Corporate Development Unit, Civic Centre 3, Huddersfield HD1 2RP.
The Queensgate Revival project results from Kirklees taking a new look at options for a widescale redevelopment following the `listing' of the library and market hall.
