The Inclusive Mobility and Transport Advisory Committee (IMTAC) is organising a pedestrian workshop on the 5th February 2020 to be held at Girdwood Community Hub.
The workshop will focus on two specific barriers in the pedestrian environment that frequently make life difficult disabled people, older people and others – pavement parking and A Boards on footways.
The workshop programme will include a keynote speaker from Scotland, highlighting proactive measures introduced by both local and national Government there to tackle both issues. We want to involve a range of stakeholders including disabled people, older people,local representatives, officials from local and central government, business representatives and other agencies such as PSNI.
Register online registration at surveymonkey.co.uk/r/JDK8H5W. Places at the workshop are limited but we will do our best to accommodate everyone.
IMTAC have chosen Girdwood as a venue because it offers the accessible facilities required by IMTAC including step-free, ground floor facilities, accessible toilets including a Changing Places facility and accessible car parking. We are committed to ensuring we make any other reasonable adjustments to ensure disabled people can take part in the event including meeting transport and other costs for attendees where these are barriers. Please let me IMTAC your particular requirements.
