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 in to better on-street provision.
The Tactile Paving Questionnaire has been created online please complete it before the 24th July deadline. the DoT have asked that any individual who encounters a difficultly with completing the online questionnaire either elicit the assistance of friends/family or call the number in the survey where they can enter the information via telephone: 01344 770711 or 01344 770098.
