When designing hard landscape solutions, consideration must be given to enable free and safe movement for all persons around the built environment. Successful landscapes are also inclusive spaces that require a functional solution as well as maintaining aesthetics. This seminar discusses the background and legislative requirements for the correct use of tactile paving elements, the tactile units currently available and their correct application and installation. The wider issues of ramp and step access when designing for inclusive mobility are also covered.
