The work on Huddersfield’s New Street is nearly done, bringing the Huddersfield Blueprint closer to completion.
New Street saw the creation of its three big planters earlier this year, and the works on the street are set to be done by next Spring if the weather conditions are good enough, according to Kirklees Council. Work will end for the year on Thursday 21st December, and will begin again at some point in the new year.
Through the Huddersfield Blueprint, more space is set to be created for people, to eat and socialise outdoors. In addition, some greenery has been added to the street.

Furthermore, new planters, trees, and lighting have been brought in. A new CCTV system designed to deter anti-social behaviour is being introduced, along with new lighting for the street.
Once all of the works have been completed, a poem by Poet Laureate Simon Armitage will be marked into the street.
The work being done on New Street is part of Kirklees Council’s wider £250m Huddersfield Blueprint plan, with other aspects of the plan also making progress.
