Best Practice Access Guidelines: Designing accessible environments


In our strategic plan, a commitment was made to develop and publicise IWA Access Guidelines, which would be based upon national and international best practice and cover all aspects of the built environment. This publication is part of the fulfilment of that commitment and our task going forward will be to promote these Guidelines. The publication of IWA’s Access Guidelines is the culmination of considerable research, review and analysis. We hope that they will provide a useful roadmap for everyone involved in planning and improving the built environment. It is with pleasure that IWA endorses these Guidelines for use by individuals, groups, organisations, companies, builders, architects, and everyone in society. We also look forward to receiving any comments on the Guidelines through the mechanism highlighted.
