Non compliance with the The Equality Act 2010

Reported via desktop in the Public Right of Way footpath category anonymously at 17:35, Monday 15 August 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

There are lots of problems with the high street where the width of the pavement is too narrow and blocked by obstacles such as trees, posts, benches either bolted or permanently fixed, restaurant chairs and tables which have been placed without due care and attention. The The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful for public authorities, including highways authorities, to discriminate in the exercise of a public function. They also have a duty to make reasonable adjustments including changing practices, policies and procedures which have a discriminating effect and to take reasonable steps to enable disabled people to avoid substantial disadvantages caused by physical features. There are many locations on the high street where the council is showing non compliance. I have taken this area as an example, the pavement fronting Kelsey House where there are trees, posts and seating all in the way of travel. This same problem in found in many other locations up and down the high street where the path of travel is restricted.

Can you please attend to the chairs and tables and other obstacles placed in the path of travel along the full length of our high street.
