Invitation from Calderdale Council
Detailed proposals for Mytholmroyd's public spaces will be on display at the Mytholmroyd Arts Festival open art exhibition this weekend (St Michael's Church, 1-6pm on Saturday 19th and 12-4pm on Sunday 20th October).
The public realm master plan has been developed by Xanthe Quayle Landscape Architecture (XQLA) for Calderdale Council and Historic England. It recognises that changes taking place in the village following the flooding of Dec 2015 and the Flood Alleviation Scheme have completely altered the context for the village’s future physical development.
The design prepared by XQLA acknowledges that the personality for the village centre must be enhanced by combining elements of the old and new, and this approach has been endorsed by local stakeholders in design workshops.
The vision set out in the master plan is to create well-connected and adaptable public spaces, where people can be sheltered from the worst excesses of traffic noise and pollution and so that the village can have greater flexibility to host events and activities and be generally more welcoming.
