Kirklees Council to sell historic sites and community facilities to tackle £47m Deficit

The council wants to make £4m through the sale of assets in the current financial year

In its ongoing efforts to address a £47m deficit, cash-strapped Kirklees Council is looking to dispose of more than 50 assets.

Historic buildings including the Grade II Listed former Red House Museum at Liversedge and Gomersal, and the former Almondbury Library are in line to be offloaded, as are community facilities like the DRAM Centre at Dalton and HUDAWI Centre on Huddersfield’s Great Northern Street. Plots of land, village halls and former council officer are also listed for disposal.

According to a council report, the local authority wants to make a minimum of £4m within the current financial year from the sale of assets. While the council is looking to bring in some cash, other options for some sites include Community Asset Transfers where a site is handed over to be owned and managed by the community.

Below is a ward by ward breakdown of all the assets the council has agreed to dispose of since the start of the current financial year.
