Stevenage Borough Council have worked with AccessAble to create Access Guides to venues and areas throughout Stevenage Town Centre, including 30 local shops.
The Guides can be used to plan an accessible route from Stevenage train station to the town centre, and also include detailed accessibility information for two car parks in the town.
The Guides are 100% facts, figures and photographs to help residents and visitors plan their journeys to and around the town centre, covering everything from parking facilities and hearing loops, to walking distances and accessible toilets.
We know everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. It’s why all of the details you’ll find in the Guide have been checked in person, by trained surveyors.
Dr Gregory Burke, Founder of AccessAble, said:
“We were thrilled to work in partnership with Stevenage Borough Council to make this dedicated Accessibility Guide to Stevenage Town Centre. The AccessAble website and App will enhance the experience of residents and visitors giving people access to crucial detail on the go. Our aim is to encourage more Councils to adopt a similar approach that will enable disabled people to have greater freedom in exploring their local area.”
Stevenage Borough Council said:
“We want everyone to enjoy full and equal access to our buildings and facilities, so we are delighted to be working with AccessAble who can now provide all residents of Stevenage and visitors to our town with up to date information through their brilliant and invaluable Accessibility Guides.”

It’s also available via the AccessAble App which is free to download from the App Store and Google Play, giving you accessibility information at your fingertips to use on the go.
The information to Stevenage Town Centre joins over 70,000 places already covered across the UK, making www.AccessAble.co.uk a great tool for planning a day out or trip away.
