Women and Equalities Committee

Disability and the built environment: follow-up inquiry

Inquiry status: open

One-off evidence session.

Scope of the inquiry

The Committee’s inquiry into disability and the built environment looked at:

  • Government policy on and current provision of accessible properties (including homes and commercial premises)
  • The effectiveness of UK legislation, policies and standards on accessibility in the built environment
  • Design and management of the public realm
  • The role of designers, architects and built environment specialists in ensuring accessibility and inclusivity
  • Local involvement in decision-making.

The Committee published a set of recommendations in its report ‘Building for Equality: disability and the built environment’ in April 2017 and the Government responded to these in March 2018. The Committee is now taking further evidence from the Government on its response to the Committee’s recommendations.
