Access Group

The main role for the Access Group is:

  • To be aware of upcoming plans, regeneration and development within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea with a specific eye on ensuring that local disabled people will be catered for in the new plans,
  • Representing local disabled people by feeding into consultations about upcoming developments -
  • ensuring that, while building works are undertaken, disabled people are not disadvantaged.
  • Looking at accessibility as a whole – not just physical access into a building- for example looking a public transport routes and connections to new developments
  • To support the Access Project

This year the group has taken on a range of activities, including:

  • Advising officers in RBKC’s Planning Department on the accessibility (or otherwise!) of new builds and developments in the borough.
  • Advising RBKC on access to local polling stations (ahead of the general election).
  • Advising local health providers on access to their buildings.
  • Producing ourĀ Access K and C “Most Accessible”report, identifying the most accessible venues in categories chosen by the Access Group.

The Access Group at ADKC meets monthly – see our ADKC Access Group flyer and keep a look at our events page for dates and times of future meetings.
