Dewsbury Riverside

The Dewsbury Riverside proposal looks to address the local, regional and national shortage of housing, whilst also contributing to the regeneration of the wider area, as a key element of the North Kirklees Growth Zone. The LEP is funding infrastructure and access works to unlock the housing site.

The site is a Homes England Infrastructure Fund site. 

Dewsbury Riverside is an urban extension of 4,000 homes, master-planned alongside new infrastructure and a community hub.

Dewsbury Riverside can accommodate 4,000 new homes. The initial phases of Dewsbury Riverside and the community hub can be delivered on unrestricted land and allocations which, with the benefit of LGF investment, will de-risk the wider development.
