Access and inclusion in the built environment: policy and guidance – as exemplified by London approach.
The need to address inclusive design from concept stage onwards is embedded in the planning process within London far more so than many other parts of the country. The key areas for consideration for designers are:
- The London Plan.
- The Equality Act 2010.
- The Building Regulations.
- The Principles of Inclusive Design.
- The Olympic and Paralympic Games precedent.
- The National Planning Policy Framework.
