Act now to make sure street design changes are accessible for everyone

The Government has told councils to move quickly to adapt street design to encourage more walking and cycling.

These changes must be accessible for blind and partially sighted people.


We’re worried the speed of change means there’s a risk some schemes could make walking more difficult for blind and partially sighted people.

At the same time, councils have the chance to run local hire e-scooter schemes which could lead to more obstacles on pavements.

Please write to your local councillor to ask that they make sure any changes that happen locally don’t affect your ability to get out and about.
