Accessible means that disabled persons can, without assistance, approach, enter, pass to and from, and make use of a built environment without undue difficulties.
Providing easy access into and around buildings and public spaces is important for everybody but essential for disabled people.
In other words, access means:
|Is a building accessible?|
|Does it comply with the Building Regulations?|
|Does Planning Permission require it to have an entrance ramp and disabled people's parking space?|
It can also mean ... Is my home accessible and usable by me and my visitors?
