Disability Access Forum launches revised Hebden Bridge Access Map
Monday, 11 December 2023
Hebden Bridge Disability Access Forum has just published its updated Step-Free Access Map and Guide to Hebden Bridge town centre. The map was first published in 2018 but is now fully updated to December 2023.
Previous editions have been useful for both residents and visitors to the town. Websites for local events, such as the HebWeb and Folk Roots Festival, have included links to the map.
The new map is available to view and print here.
Paper copies of the map and guide are available from the desk in the Town Hall foyer.
There are some changes to the Step Free Guide, as shops, cafes and other businesses have changed hands since our last update in 2022.
The access map and guide is one of many things which HBDAF does to improve access to life for disabled people in the Hebden Bridge area. They also consult with businesses, charities and public bodies to improve access to existing and planned places, events and services.
The Forum needs new members to help them with their work, and to share access suggestions, concerns and lived experiences. They welcome all Deaf, disabled or neurodivergent people and those with long-term health conditions.
They especially welcome younger disabled people to join them so they can better represent our diverse local disabled community. They also welcome non-disabled people as Associates to help us with their work."
Hebden Bridge Disability Access Forum meetings are held on the third Monday of the month at 2.30 p.m. in Hebden Bridge Town Hall and via Zoom. Use this email for details, or phone 01422 844914.
Hebden Bridge Disability Access Forum is a working group of Hebden Royd Town Council
