Making Hebden Bridge a better place for all

Recovering from the 2015 Boxing Day flood

Our flood recovery meeting on Saturday January 16th 2016 packed out the Waterfront Hall (Photo above).

Read here our comprehensive submission to Calderdale's Flood Commission. (The final report is now published- available here)

Our AGM, combined with the annual Hebden Bridge: Our Town review of the year, was on Oct 24th and attracted fifty people. Thirty organisations took the opportunity to share news of their activities and plans.  The Partnership's Annual Report, presented then, is here.



Hebden Bridge Partnership and the Community Foundation for Calderdale have jointly launched a new initiative, Making Hebden Bridge Accessible for All.  Our aim is to make our town an exemplar in terms of access, for both local people and visitors with disabilities.

 Local businesses and organisations are invited to take part in a (voluntary) Access Audit to identify small-scale steps which may make their premises more easily used by those with access needs. Subsequently, grant-funding (of up to £3000) will be available from the Foundation to undertake improvements identified in the audit.

To take part in the audit, please complete this form. (Press release about the initiative is here)

2020 Vision: our strategic plan for Hebden Bridge

2020 vision




Hebden Bridge Partnership is the ‘town team’, concerned with initiatives to improve the economic and community life of our town.

Our Action Plan, Vision 2020, identifies a number of priority areas for our attention in the coming years. The final version of the Action Plan follows our earlier draft, launched in May 2013, and has



been amended in the light of feedback and comments. Details of all comments received can be found on the website.

Our 2016 Annual Report on how we are getting on is available here.



For the fourth year running, the Partnership has produced our highly popular Hebden Bridge brochure for visitors and tourists. The 2017 edition is just out. It's here.

You'll be able very shortly to get hard copies in the local Tourist Information Centre.
