THREE out of four of Kirklees Council's public buildings are not accessible to disabled people, it is said.
In a Yorkshire and Humberside league table the district languishes in 18th place out of 21.
Only 23.6% of Kirklees public buildings are fully accessible to the public.
In Selby the figure is 96%.
Only Hull, Barnsley and north-east Lincolnshire are lower in the table than Kirklees.
Twenty-four councils in England have 100% of their buildings with full disabled access.
The figures have been compiled by the Government's Audit Commission.
A Kirklees spokesman said that despite the poor showing in the table most of the council's buildings were accessible to people with disabilities.
He said the table reflected a `technical standard' but added that next time Kirklees would be aiming for closer to 50%
He added: "I suspect that by 2008 we will be in the top quarter.
"Compared to some of the shire districts we do have a lot of buildings. Some are old buildings and quite a few are listed buildings."
He said a five-year plan was in place to further improve access.
