How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? Mobility is often associated with wheels - transport or places being wheelchair accessible - but there those with mobility problems who prefer to walk for whatever short distances they can manage. To make more areas accessible to non-wheelchair users more benches, handrails and seating areas are needed in public places. Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? In the centre of Glasgow for example Argyle Street has benches that able-bodied people use but people with mobility problems would have a problem getting that far. Thought needs to be given to connectivity. A general Increase in pedestrian areas means less accessibility via transport so more disabled-friendly provision is needed.
