Countryside for All standards

The Countryside for All standards, developed through the BT Countryside for All Project by the Fieldfare Trust, define minimum physical access standards for three different situations: 'Urban and Formal', 'Urban Fringe and Managed', and 'Rural and Working Landscapes'. There is a simple scoring system to assess what type of situation you are working with, and the standards recognise that people expect a different level of provision in city parks to open countryside.

If your path meets the relevant standard, you can promote it as fully accessible, using the international symbol for disability. This is a real help, not just for people using wheelchairs but for older folk using sticks to help them balance, people recovering from illness, or anyone pushing a child's buggy.
