Dews Motor Group has announced it will move its Brighouse operation to Halifax.

The group, which runs five franchise operations across Calderdale, has occupied the Bradford Road site since 1920 but said that the location is no longer sustainable for volume motor dealing.

Managing Director Craig Hamer said: “The cost to redevelop would have been greater than relocation and we had already agreed new lease terms on our site at Haley Hill in Halifax which has capacity to consolidate our operations. The trend for clustering car dealerships to provide a central destination for customers further supports this and strategically we had to look at our location in order to maintain franchise status.”
