Is Key decision?: No


The Lancashire Visually Impaired Forum invited the Highways Service to attend their meetings and asked that consideration be given to developing a Street Charter based on the Royal National Institute of Blind People's toolkit as part of their Inclusive Journeys campaign.


Officers have worked with the Lancashire Visually Impaired Forum and with officers from Preston City Council to develop the attached document at Appendix 'A' which draws together existing policies and procedures relating to the management of the public realm. Cabinet approval is sought for the approval of the Street Charter (Appendix 'A' refers) as an advice document to inform public realm work in the Preston City area as a pilot scheme and to engage with the remaining 11 district councils in Lancashire with a view to agreeing similar approval of the Street Charter.


The Cabinet approved the recommendation(s) as set out in the report.
