The Deighton & Brackenhall Initiative Limited (DBI) is a revolutionary, award-winning partnership betw een the community, elected members, public services, agencies and business which is improving local services, community facilities and the overall environment in an effort to improve the quality of life for all residents living in the area.
The first such project of its kind in Kirklees, the Deighton Brackenhall Initiative has opened up new ways of thinking for communities, business and government agencies and has received a number of awards.
DBI Ltd was established in late 1997 to tackle the range of issues that were spoiling the quality of life for local residents and preventing new people from moving into the area. Since 1997 the Initiative has achieved a huge range of improvements as detailed on this website.
DBI Ltd has recognised from the outset that it needs to ensure the sustainability of its investment and is continually identifying opportunities to ensure a comprehensive, co-ordinated approach is taken.
DBI Ltd has made great strides in delivering against the communities original and top priorities and continues to implement the Masterplan resulting in the securing of additional funding, more effective use of resources, joint delivery arrangements and more importantly the delivery of the communities Vision through a focussed and committed partnership approach.
DBI Ltd is overseen by a Board of Directors which annually reviews and decides on the key priorities for continuing to improve the area.
