Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd Development Board

The Council established Town Development Boards to take forward regeneration working with local communities (Nov 2015). These were for:

  • Halifax;
  • Brighouse;
  • Elland;
  • Sowerby Bridge;
  • Todmorden; and
  • Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd.

Their aim is to regenerate Calderdale’s town centres. They looks at ways to involve local communities and Ward Councillors in the work.

Each Board works with public, private and voluntary organisations in the area. This is to build on valuable work already done. They also take a strategic view of the needs and opportunities of the local area.

Membership for Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd Town Board is drawn from:

  • Calder Ward;
  • Luddendenfoot Ward;
  • Calderdale Council;
  • Hebden Royd Town Council;
  • and people who represent the local business community and residents of Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd.

The Board is supported by Officers from Calderdale Council. The formal membership of elected members was agreed at Cabinet on Monday 6th March 2017.

The business and community membership was agreed through an application process. This was formally decided at the first Board meeting on Tuesday March 28th 2017.
