Understanding the impact of increased pedestrianisation on disabled people

The council has extended the amount of pedestrianised areas in the city centre - known as the footstreets - to allow social distancing and support York’s economy.

We had to move quickly and could not consult beforehand. We want to hear from all disabled people, whether they use a blue badge or not. We also welcome the views of any other residents who may not consider themselves disabled but feel the footstreets extension has affected their ability to access the city centre. We want to consider ways in which we can best cater for everyone’s needs as well as improving safety and accessibility.

Please join the conversation so we can make improvements.

This information and survey is one way we are engaging with disabled people in York about the ongoing extension of the city’s pedestrianised footstreets.

We are consulting with a number of disability and advocacy groups in York about the changes.  We are also responding to every individual who has contacted us about the changes so we reach as many people as possible over the next few weeks. 

The results of this survey will be used by councillors and council officers to influence their decisions and will be included in Ward Profiles and will be available on York Open Data.
