Our Vision for Calderdale is to create a place where Talent and Enterprise thrive, defined by Kindness and Resilience, a place full of hope, known for how our communities care for, and support each other. We want Calderdale to be Distinctive; where everyone can reach their potential and live a larger life.
Calderdale is set in the beautiful surroundings of the South Pennines in West Yorkshire, a vibrant Metropolitan Borough, and an active part of Leeds City Region.
