DCAN 11 (Draft): Access for all - Designing for an Accessible Environment

Issued by: Planning Service
Status: Draft
Published: August 2003
This Advice Note provides supplementary design guidance for developers and their agents aimed at creating a more accessible environment for all in support of the Department’s planning policies.
The guidance is clearly focused on people with disabilities, but creating a more accessible and hospitable environment will also benefit others, such as the elderly, carers, parents with small children, people with temporary mobility problems (e.g. a leg in plaster) or simply those carrying luggage or heavy shopping.
