Safer streets for everyone

As more businesses start to reopen and Calderdale’s towns and villages get busier, the Council is introducing additional measures to help people feel safer when shopping, queuing, walking and cycling.

In June, to support non-essential retailers to start reopening, Calderdale Council launched new safety features in town centres to enable social distancing and more space for queuing, to complement the measures introduced by businesses.

The changes, which may remain for up to 18 months, included removing the bus stops and taxi rank on Market Street and closing on-street parking bays on Old Market in Halifax.

Every scheme will be kept under regular review and all feedback will be taken into account.

Everyone who goes out and about in Calderdale must follow the guidance to keep themselves and others safe.
