Local Authority National Accessibility Week - 28th November – 2nd December 2011
Local Authority National Accessibility Week 2011 is taking place from 28th November to 2nd December 2011. The week-long campaign will coincide with International Day of People with Disability which is taking place on 3rd December 2011.
National Accessibility Week is a continuation of the 2010 campaign which was designed with a particular focus on illegal and inconsiderate parking, poor parking behaviour and the difficulties and access issues that are caused by parking on footpaths, blocking entrances etc. The theme of the week is ‘Park Right’.
Parking illegally on the footpath effectively forces people with disabilities, wheelchair users, parents with pushchairs, older people, visually impaired and all pedestrians onto the roadway and into traffic. The campaign aims to create general awareness of this issue on both a national and local level.
