Access / Inclusive Design

Designing inclusively and achieving access for all is an essential part of development. At City Planning, we fully understand the policy requirements and building regulation standards, and provide expert advice to our clients covering all elements of a development proposal. This may include the approach to buildings, accessible parking, internal building circulation, room layouts, safe means of escape and public realm design. We engage with local authorities and access groups to understand different viewpoints and work closely with designers to achieve designs that are accessible and have in-built flexibility, to enable adaptations as needs change in the future.
