The Department for Transport is presently in the process of considering changes to the document Guidance on the Use of Tactile Paving Surfaces, and have commissioned TRL and Urban Movement to understand more about the understanding of tactile paving by blind & partially sighted people, and also people with other disabilities such as wheelchair users or those with mental health conditions or non-visible disabilities.
The results of this study may be used to improve this guidance document, which would feed through into better on-street provision.
A questionnaire has been created online – Link below
The questionnaire closes for responses on 24th July 2019.
We might encourage that any individual who encounters a difficultly with completing the online questionnaire either elicit the assistance of friends/family
