Todmorden Development Board

On 27 February 2013, Cabinet resolved to set up a Todmorden Development Board in order to ensure there are clear and transparent governance arrangements in place to drive forward further regeneration activity in Todmorden.

The aim is to provide renewed vigour and direction through a single body which has democratic legitimacy and which can take a strategic view of the town centre and its immediate surroundings.

The Board works closely with other public, private and voluntary organisations to build upon the valuable work already carried out by these bodies.

Two years of investment!

The Board is celebrating two years of investment in Todmorden. Projects have included restoration work to the Town Hall, improvements to Centre Vale Park, and support for Todmorden Market - see Celebrating two years of investment [PDF file 297KB]|PDF file
