Green towns

Batley & Dewsbury Towns’ Management work closely with the council and local businesses to make sure that Batley and Dewsbury are clean, green and attractive places to live, work and visit.

Each year we work to achieve funding and sponsorship so that we can place floral tubs and planters in the town centres during the summer. We also offer hanging baskets and floral tubs for sale to local businesses so that they can increase their kerb appeal and enhance their premises.

Green Business Awards

We run an awards scheme called Green Business Awards, which encourages businesses to keep their premises neat and tidy as well as demonstrate their commitment to reducing their impact on the environment. If you run a local business and are interested to know more about these awards, please visit the Green Business page.
