Wakefield Future High Street (Fund) September 2019 – March 2020

Arcadis + Wakefield Metropolitan District Council (WMDC)


Submission Summary: Wakefield’s FHSF story is based around decisive structural intervention. This work is at pre-planning stage, aimed at redefining Wakefield’s high street through bold physical interventions that will place culture and creativity at the heart of the future city.

Our work has been to articulate a strategic, economic and full business case supported by high quality placemaking and strong stakeholder and public engagement. Proposals include catalytic interventions that will result in a transformational step change in how the city centre is currently used and provide diversification of the high street to promote its long-term health for all users.
