Thousands of buildings checked for disabled access

Have your say

MORE than 1,000 public buildings and venues across County Durham will be checked for accessibility.

Durham County Council is working with website DisabledGo, which provides details about site access.

Jenny Haworth, head of planning and performance, said: “DisabledGo provides disabled people with the information needed to make informed choices about accessing their community.

“I am very pleased we are able to take this project forward in Durham, joining many other towns, cities and areas on the award-winning website.”

Community events will be held on May 22 and 23 to come up with a list of venues to be assessed.
