The ATC sits on Hebden Bridge town partnership, the group which was instrumental in persuading Yorkshire Forward to run their flagship Rural Renaissance initiative in the Upper Calder Valley. This initiative has involved over 2000 members of the local community in putting together town and action plans for the valley. The ATC acts as the resource for sustainability for the initiative and is involved in a number of projects:
