Impact of the Piece Hall on Halifax Town Centre

Dear Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

After reading the recent Bradshaw Advisory report about "The Piece Hall Effect", we would like to ask for information relating to various claims made in that report.

1) CMBC Chief Executive Robin Tuddenham states that "The report shows the impact that the Trust has had, and evidences the return on our investment into the project".

Can you provide evidence which shows that the investment made by CMBC in the Piece Hall has actually generated a return on investment, along with exact figures to support this assertion?

2) The report claims that the Piece Hall "has added over £26m to Calderdale’s economy since it re-opened two years ago".

Can CMBC provide financial data to show that this figure is accurate, or at least provide figures which relate to Calderdale's economy for the years 2017, 2018 and 2019?

3) Another claim made in the report states that "The Piece Hall Trust’s activities return an ‘extraordinary’ £5.30 for every £1 spent to run the building".

Can CMBC provide financial data which shows how much return is actually generated for every £1 spent on running the Piece Hall?

4) Can CMBC provide data which shows the gross and net value of tourism in Calderdale for the years 2017, 2018 and 2019?

Yours faithfully,

Calderdale Against Corruption

Suzanne Prescott, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council
