Kingswood Structures shares an in-depth guide called “Guide to Accessible and Responsive Street Furniture”. It offers plenty of valuable information such as:
- An overview of how good street furniture design and public infrastructure planning, as well as careful consideration of accessibility needs, can significantly improve the lives of people with disabilities.
- Important facts and figures about disability and accessibility. Did you know that, of the most common disabilities in the UK, 52% are related to mobility, 38% to stamina, breathing and fatigue, and 27% to dexterity?
- Insights into laws such as the Equality Act of 2010 and recent developments in accessible planning from both the public and private sector. (e.g.: In 2017, the city of Chester got first prize in the European Access City Award for going beyond the legal requirements for accessibility, particularly for their historic city walls.)
- Other useful resources, best practices, and sources of information to find out more about inclusivity in town planning, accessibility, and street furniture for the disabled.
