Bradford: Boldly re-imagining itself for the next generation and pioneering its own remarkable regeneration journey

Bradford, a city rich in history and full of potential, is at the helm of its own regeneration journey. Bradford is boldly reimagining itself for the next generation. Our vibrant city and district is shaping its own destiny.

The city is embarking on a journey marked by significant regeneration projects. These projects will enhance living and working environments, as well as amplifying economic growth. Each project is a calculated investment, poised to yield substantial economic return. 'One City Park', a £35 million development, epitomises high-quality Grade A office space adaptable for modern hybrid working practices. 'Darley Street Market', a £23 million project, is set to revitalise Bradford's retail sector with an ecological retail space. 'Bradford Live' is reinventing a former iconic cinema building as a world-class entertainment venue.

The 'Southern Gateway' is a regeneration scheme based around a new rail station, designed to attract further private sector investment. 'City Village' is set to create around 1,000 new sustainable city-centre homes, and finally, the addition of 'BRIT School' reflects Bradford’s dedication to nurturing creative talent. 

Our Development Frameworks will guide the future development of Bradford, Keighley, Shipley and Bingley over the next 15-20 years.  The draft City of Bradford framework introduces 12 geographical growth areas including the Knowledge Quarter, Forster Square, Southern Gateway and Holme Wood.  Our Keighley, Shipley and Bingley frameworks consider the strategic investment opportunities across a range of geographical character areas.

Bradford is redefining itself with each project. Whether it's the development of state-of-the-art office spaces attracting top businesses and skilled professionals, the creation of high-quality public spaces, or the culture and energy through events through UK City of Culture 2025, Bradford is not just changing; it's flourishing.

Investing in Bradford is investing in a city that is not waiting for change to happen. It is a city that is making change happen. This self-driven transformation is a testament to Bradford's passion for progress.
