Key quotes from respondents

“Disabled parking has not been mentioned. The current car park is not adequate and if you have accessibility issues it’s too far from the planned building.”

“The information provided suggests only the minimum necessary for accessibility. Would like ideas to go further and be endorsed by disabled representatives, not just wheelchair users.”

“Accessibility has been taken into account for wheelchair users but is it friendly for blind and deaf people, for those with autism etc. The definition you have used is too narrow.”
