BS 8300-1:2018 Design of an accessible and inclusive built environment. External environment - code of practice
Resulting from the restructure of BS 8300 into two parts, BS 8300-1:2018 promotes good practice design principles to ensure the external built environment, including streets, parks, landscaped areas, the approach to a building and the spaces between and around buildings, is inclusive and can meet the needs of all who use it, not only disabled people. Covers: development of the inclusive design strategy; strategic site and building layout; arrival at a destination; parking provision; horizontal movement - access routes, hazards, signage, surfaces, gates and barriers; vertical movement - steps, stairs, ramps, handrails, lifts, subways and bridges; public facilities; lighting; and specific locations, including nature trails, beaches, parks and historic landscapes to name a few.
Supersedes BS 8300:2009 (+A1:2010).
