Access statements

If the proposal complies fully with ADM, there is not a requirement to submit an access statement. However this is perhaps a lost opportunity for designers as an access statement can assist the design team to focus on their design and level of inclusivity, form a useful tool for the client in the property’s health and safety file (under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations), and assist the occupier in duties under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
