Plans to revitalise Wakefield’s Kirkgate area are moving forward this month as part of a wider multi-million pound plan to improve the city centre.
The redevelopment of the area from Chantry roundabout to the ABC cinema site begun this week with preliminary works to prepare for demolition, with a temporary public open space to be created for local residents after this is completed.
Over the next few years, the council plans to bring over 150 more homes and create new green areas to the Kirkgate area of the city.
