Sheffield Green Councillor contributes to Building For Equality report

Councillor Douglas Johnson has contributed to the Women and Equalities Select Committee report, Building for Equality, published today – 25th April 2017.

The report of cross-party MPs looks at barriers to disabled people that are built into housing, roads, workplaces and shops. It concludes that the government must do more and the planning system can and must be improved to ensure better access.

Douglas Johnson gave evidence to the committee, arguing that the planning system should support developers who offer accessible design and should tackle those that don’t.

Douglas Johnson’s full evidence report is available here.

The final report of the Women and Equalities Committee is here.
