QUESTIONS, REPRESENTATIONS AND STATEMENTS OF CASE

a)     Margaret Lewis asks the following questions:

 

The evidence is clear that LCC has presided over a marked reduction in disabled access & design expertise over the past three years. First, with the loss of the Disability Discrimination act post, then with the shelving of the Leicester Designs Standards Document (LIDs) and finally the loss of the Disabled Access Officer role, who had a key role in involving disabled people via the Disabled peoples Access group, in decision making.

 

How do you plan to replace this expertise? What are the milestones and timescales?

How are you planning to involve disabled people formally in the formative stages of street and building design? What are the milestones and timescales?”

 

b)        The Monitoring Officer to report on any further Questions, Representations and Statements of Case received in accordance with Council procedures.
