The Calderdale Next Chapter website, which provides the latest information on the many regeneration and investment projects taking place in the borough, has been redesigned to make it more user friendly.
The www.calderdalenextchapter.co.uk(external link) site includes information about all the current and planned work in Calderdale as part of the Next Chapter for the borough, with over £200 million of investment.
The investment in transport, public spaces and new facilities will generate growth; creating a socially and economically vibrant Calderdale. At the heart of our regeneration agenda, we want Calderdale to be a place where people choose to invest, live, work, visit and study.
Earlier this year a survey exercise was carried out focusing on Next Chapter communication; the responses to this have been used to shape the new website design.
The layout of the site has been simplified to make it easier to navigate and find the projects of interest. It is also fully responsive with mobile devices, enabling the site to be viewed on a wide range of web browsers and devices.
Going forward, regular updates will be uploaded to the new articles and project pages and the site will continue to develop to ensure all the information about the many Next Chapter projects is easy to find.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Strategy, Cllr Barry Collins, said:
“Our research showed that although people valued the content on the Next Chapter website, few actually regularly visited the site and some found the layout confusing. To address this we’ve made some changes to make the website easier to use and help people find relevant information.
“There’s so much happening in Calderdale and a staggering amount of investment is going in to making our borough an even better place to live and work. The Next Chapter website is a great way to find out more about major projects like the plans for Elland and Halifax rail stations, proposals for improvements in Halifax town centre, the investment work along the A629 corridor and much much more.”
