Talks on use for centre site.

COUNCILLORS say plans for the Deighton Centre site must benefit the local area.

Kirklees Cabinet has agreed to close the building next year and relocate staff to Huddersfield town centre.

The former school is an office, training and community centre and has a nursery.

Ward councillors have asked that any potential development brief for the site ensures access to the nearby Christ Church Woodhouse Academy School and parking is improved, as well as access to the Deighton Sports Arena, which is not affected by the centre's closure.

They have also signalled their support for more health-based services to be provided within the ward.

Council officers are also assessing childcare provision as the nursery will have to leave the centre.
