Horton House

Save Horton House: Calderdale SOS has asked Calderdale Council’s Scrutiny Panels to examine the decision to “dispose of” Horton House, Halifax’s Adult Education Centre. The decision was taken quietly with no consultation and no coherent alternative plan for future adult education provision in Halifax. Copy of the SOS Scrutiny submission here. SOS Horton House web page here. Question on Horton House asked at Council Meeting on Wednesday 28 November and reply here. Question on Horton House asked at Calderdale Council Cabinet Meeting on Monday 10 December and reply here. Download Horton House leaflet here.
