Bradford’s got its buzz on! The talk to us and about today’s news that Bradford is the most improved city in the UK. There’s more to do – so much more to do – but this is a welcome boost. 🐗

When I first started spending time in Bradford - in 2012, when George Galloway became a local MP - it was a pretty sad place. Now: most improved city, according to PWC. Still a lot of work to do but I think this acolade is richly deserved.

The Council’s plan is to close the Oastler Centre once the new market opens. We’ve hosted many debates/events relating to this project, and the general consensus is that Darley Street was increasingly unfit for modern retail needs, and would have declined regardless of Broadway.

Why not have both! The new market looks great.

Re-routing/tunnelling the ring road is one of many ideas that have been suggested over the years. There are, of course, more short term solutions too. Regardless, It’s not ideal having your city’s biggest cultural attractions separated by 6 lanes of traffic.

Exciting times for Darley Street at workers move in to prep the site for demolition. The street will be home to a new central market and public square.

More green space all around the city centre is much needed. If we win City of Culture, we’ll also need to look very seriously at how we connect the cultural venues of the West End to the centre of the city.

I would use the space where John st market is to build a new park when it gets relocated to Darley street
