West Yorkshire Combined Authority have just launched their public consultation on their plans for the redevelopment of Halifax Bus Station. Disability Partnership Calderdale were involved in a preliminary consultation stage late last year and we were broadly impressed with the plans, but we’d encourage everyone to look at the plans for themselves and feed back on them, with a particular emphasis on their suitability for people with disabilities!
Here’s what West Yorkshire Combined Authority have to say about the process:
Used by 15,000 people every day, Halifax Bus Station is a key gateway for people arriving in the town centre. Developed with Calderdale Council, the proposals aim to deliver a modern fit for purpose facility that complements the surrounding heritage, public realm and urban fabric of Halifax town centre. The redeveloped bus station will significantly improve safety, comfort, connectivity and accessibility for bus station users and local people. The redeveloped bus station will also be an important transport hub and gateway into Halifax town centre, providing key connections for residents, visitors, students and workers to access employment, education, leisure and other essential services.
