This September I want to meet Victor Cooke in Barbados.
Fieldfare works with people with disabilities and countryside managers to improve access to the countryside for everyone.
For countryside service providers we provide advice and training services, supported by our research into national standards for accessibility under the BT Countryside for All Project.
Fieldfare have recently created a new website www.phototrails.org.- Phototrails is an innovative concept that allows users to view countryside routes through a series of photographs and descriptions of the path features, taking in surface, path width, gradients, barriers and amenities such as seats, disabled parking, and accessible toilets, all of which, to some, is important information to know before making the decision on whether to visit a site or not.
The minimum requirements found in the NPRM are based on several principles developed through the regulatory negotiating process. They include:
Protect resource and environment
Provide for equality of opportunity
Be clear, simple, and understandable
Be enforceable and measurable
Be consistent with ADAAG (as much as possible)
Be based on independent use by persons with disabilities
