Kirklees Council are making improvements to the play area at Primrose Hill, near Primrose Hill Road, with funding from the Playable Spaces programme. They are interested to know what you think would improve this play area, whether you’re a regular visitor or someone who doesn’t use the park at the moment. Kirklees Council will use your feedback to help create a design which meets community needs. Please fill in the quick 5 minute survey by 9th August 2021.

We’ve all seen over the past year how brilliant the people in our local places are. Working with and alongside each other is the best way to make the places where we live, work and play better. So we hope you’ll want to be part of these workshops about how we can help more people feel confident in their own ability to change things in our local places – to have influence as active citizens.Continue reading “How can more people come together to make local places better?”
Kirklees Council are working alongside citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities. Our co-ordinated Community Response is aimed at supporting those who are most vulnerable and in need of support, and who cannot currently get this help directly from friends, relatives or neighbours.
How to request support or offer support
You can use our online form let us know about the things you (or someone who you are concerned about) need help with. You can also tell us how you (or your organisation) can support others.
Or call our Covid-19 Community Response freephone helpline: 0800 4561114
The helpline is currently open from 8am to 6pm weekdays.
A local number for our Covid-19 Community Response helpline, 01484 226919 is also available, and we will happily call you back.
Join the Castle Hill Ranger for a refreshing winter walk on the eve of the Winter Solstice, which marks the longest night and shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The walk will be 5 miles. Free.

For the walk you will need good footwear, warm clothing and waterproofs. There will be some slopes, rough terrain and a number of step-over stiles. Meet at the top car park on Castle Hill. Sorry, no dogs except assistance dogs. Organised by Kirklees Council.
Local Democracy Week is a way of helping people to have a voice and be actively involved in the things that really matter in our local communities. There is a free programme of free events throughout October, including a discussion about councillors, opportunities to hear from our young citizens, exhibitions and a talk about the benefits of parish councils.
People make places great. Kirklees Council are pledging £50k of funding for local groups and citizens over the next year to support great ideas for making our local places even better.
Growing Great Places is a new community crowdfunding initiative which is all about bringing people and places together. You might have a little idea that can have a big impact in your local area. Or you might need some help growing support for an ambitious project that’s just getting started.
This new programme can help you to build a campaign around your idea and get pledges of support from local people. Kirklees Council will also pledge to fund successful projects that will improve our towns, villages and communities.
There will be a fund of £50k available in the coming year, with projects potentially getting pledges of up to £5k to support their campaign, plus workshops to help you pitch your idea.
You can register to take part in the the launch event on Thursday 23rd May 2019 at The Media Centre in Huddersfield or visit the programme website to find out more:
