THE RIGHTS OF WAY IMPROVEMENT PLAN FOR RHONDDA CYNON TAF
“Improve Access for All routes”
“Develop access for all protocol, including access for mobility and sensory disability access. Survey network accessibility and map potential routes. Prioritise disabled access improvements in and around popular countryside sites.”
Please can you advise as to why you as an authority do not follow your own rights of way improvement plans?
Would your planning department and highways department be aware of Improve access for mobility all new footpaths routes CRoW Act 2000?
There is general agreement among guidelines that an 8 per cent (1 in 12) slope is the maximum that may be used; anything greater than this will cause difficulties for manual wheelchair users.
Please explain why you as a local authority would allow the development and installation of a new public footpath that will not comply with Disability Discrimination Act where there is ample room on the site for compliance with the Act?
Please explain how manual wheelchair users can access and negotiate the public footpath installed at Coed Duffryn?
