That local people do not feel well informed about what to do in the event of a large-scale emergency.

The council is working hard to raise awareness and communicate to local people what to do in the event of a large-scale emergency such as flooding such as posting alerts and advice on our website homepage.

People in some local areas in Kirklees are more concerned about issues such as litter, rats, road and pavement maintenance and how clean and tidy their local environment is.

We make sure our frontline services such as street cleaning, pest control and highways maintenance are targeted where you say they are most needed, so problem areas get more help.

From a survey into area perceptions it was evident that residents of Dewsbury had low confidence in their area and a fear of crime. Residents wanted to see more action taken by the Police, the Council and partner organisations to improve the areas highlighted by their concerns.

West Yorkshire Police (WYP), Kirklees Council and partnership organisations (METRO, Lifeline, KNH and others) carried out a focused operation of planned interventions to tackle concerns including antisocial behaviour, pollution, drug abuse etc. It has been reported that the intervention work has improved the confidence and satisfaction felt by local residents. WYP and the partnership organisations now have in place sustainable solutions to tackle the issues of concern in the Dewsbury Area.

Hello, welcome to Involve

Involve is a tool to help Kirklees Council and local public services, such as NHS Kirklees, to plan and share community involvement work - like public events, surveys and consultation.

You can use it to find past, present and future involvement across Kirklees. Involve will tell you what's happened since the work has taken place as well, so you can see what difference getting involved has made.

You can use the calendar below to see what's happening, including things you can get involved in yourself.
