The huddersfield blueprint

Kirklees Council announced the Huddersfield Blueprint in 2019. The £250m regeneration project is a 10 year plan aimed at creating at thriving, modern-day town centre. The Blueprint was made a Supplementary Planning document in May 2020.


The Blueprint focuses on regenerating six key areas, including a new Cultural Heart in the Queensgate and Piazza district, that neighbours Ramsden House. The plans will transform the immediate vicinity and the new cultural development will include a new library, art gallery, museum and live music venue. The plans also propose removing some of the Piazza shopping centre, recently bought by the council, to create a large open space. The other key areas that will benefit are; Station Gateway, St Peter’s, Kingsgate and King Street, New Street and The Civic Quarter.

Plans underway

The Blueprint plans are now in motion with the redevelopment of the former Co Op building on New Street which has been funded in partnership with Kirklees council and the Property Investment Fund. The nature of the pif means that the council can fund priority capital schemes that meet wider strategic regeneration benefits.

Ramsden house

The property presents an opportunity to capitalise on a freehold asset management and redevelopment play that will benefit directly from the ongoing regeneration of the New Street, Queensgate and Piazza districts. The Blueprint initiative will support investment and long-term growth, attracting people and business to the town centre, which will in turn add value to key strategic sites such as Ramsden House.
