Yorkshire Forward was set up by the Government to promote sustainable economic development throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region. One of England's nine Regional Development Agencies (RDAs). They support the expansion and development of business in our region by encouraging public and private investment, and by connecting people to economic opportunity. The organization has approved an investment of more than £5.5million in the redevelopment of the Waterfront site in Wakefield City Centre. Working in partnership, the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) has also earmarked more than £8 million Objective 2 funding for the project. This is the first major investment in the city following the creation of the masterplan for the renaissance of Wakefield, and will see the development of 0.76 hectares of the 4.55 hectare site. The Yorkshire Forward investment will enable flood prevention works, highway improvements to provide access to the site and site infrastructure works to ensure that development of the site is not impeded. Within this vital first phase of works will be the restoration of the Grade ll Calder and Hebble Navigation warehouse to provide 2,600 sqm of commercial floorspace, the development of a new office building and 52 new residential apartments.
