Up to £1million could be spent on empty properties in the centre of Halifax. Calderdale Council has been awarded over half a million pounds to fund works which will allow 130 empty homes to be brought back into use. This money will be matched by local property owners.
The council is one of 20 local authorities to secure the funding from the government's Clusters of Empty Homes Fund.
– Barry Collins, Calderdale Council
People in Calderdale need homes and this is a real positive step to doing that and to breathing new life into the town centre.”
