We published the Safer Public Places Guidance to provide owners and operators with a framework to support social distancing in public places. This guidance reminds owners and operators of public spaces to consider the particular needs of those with protected characteristics such as wheelchair users.
Owners and operators are advised to carefully consider social distancing guidelines in public spaces, emphasise the latest government advice on safety procedures to visitors and provide clear and concise information to the public on how to adhere to social distancing. This could include providing information on changes for disabled users and how they can continue to access public spaces in a safe way.
Local authorities are subject to the Equality Act and the Public Sector Equality duty will apply to decisions relating to these measures.
