Members will remember Sue addressing our members at our AGM in 2014. Courtesy of Disability Rights UK, we share with you the video of the meeting that took place on 26th October 2016.
While the video is long, it is very interesting & very worthwhile watching, covering-accessibility to public buildings ie shops, hotels (includes reference to a hotel in Shrewsbury!), the working environment. hearing loops and much more, It also touches on shared spaces & transport issues but that is subject to a different report. Later in the video, they include details of planning regulations, building regulations where it applies & guidance plus it features Equality Act information.
