  • Galloway's Reference Group guidance session

    February 26, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
    Howick House, Howick Park Ave, Penwortham, Preston PR1 0LS, UK

    “In partnership with the RoyalNational Institute of Blind People (RNIB), we will be delivering a guidancesession for anybody who is interested in being a part of this reference groupat Galloway’s in Penwortham on 26thFebruary between 09.30am and 1pm. We hope that by giving this group theright support and information, local people living with sight loss will be ableto influence local decisions to create a more accessible community

     

    Justlast month, Galloway’s influenced the planning decision around the proposed Adelphidevelopment. The plan was approved but a condition was placed on the plan toensure that Lancashire County Council include the provision of controlledcrossing points within the highways scheme.

     

    The referencegroup we want to develop won’t just be looking at shared space road schemes,but also things like the rise of street furniture and A-Boards throughout thetown centre, tactile paving and the increasing trend of cars incorrectlyparking on pavements.  As a charity, weare not against modern developments within the city, but we want to ensure thatthe needs of blind and partially sighted people are considered from the initialplanning stages.

     

    As acharity, which supports over 7,000 blind and partially sighted people everyyear, we are looking to develop a small group of people who will represent thechallenges visually impaired people face getting around public spaces.Galloway’s will provide up to date information, guidance and training to enablethe group to influence decision making within the city; specifically looking ataccessibility and mobility for people affected by sight loss.

     

    Weare looking for blind and partially sighted people to form a new referencegroup to work on accessibility and mobility in and around Preston City Centre.


    If you are interested in joining, email: Jenny.lloyd@galloways.org.uk or call 01772 744148.


    Doyou want to influence the accessibility of Preston?
