The Future of Hebden Bridge’s Economy
A discussion about challenges & opportunities
Monday 7th October 2019 - 6.30pm – 9.00pm
In autumn 2019 it’s possible to foresee a range of challenges facing Hebden Bridge in the next few years: disruption to the local economy from flood alleviation works; transport access issues; retail vacancies; economic uncertainty relating to Brexit, and more. But there are also opportunities: for businesses and people. It’s important to have a conversation now about how the town can anticipate and respond to all this in a positive way.
We want to hear from businesses, employees and individuals about what we can do collectively. Everyone welcome to contribute!
