A design and access statement is a report showing the process that led to a development proposal. It explains the design approach and how access provision for disabled people has been considered. It includes drawings and plans to show how issues have been considered.
For accessibility issues, a design and access statement also explains how all users will have equal and convenient access including:
- access for pedestrians, cars and public transport
- movement around a site
- access to and from a building, or the use of an open space
- the design of new housing, the plot and location
