  3. ‘If we remove hurdles for some people we remove hurdles for the rest of us’.Ken Livingstone, Disability Capital, October 2007 Presentation Autscape Conference Sarah.Clemerson@ntlworld.com 1 July 2008

  4. David Morris, Mayor’s Senior Policy Adviser (Disability Issues). “....everybody is on a spectrum of difference.  Normality is an illusion.  A mirage of perfection and people strive towards it, driven by the fear of isolation and consequently label and stigmatise those people with different abilities."(personal communication, 01/010/07) Presentation Autscape Conference Sarah.Clemerson@ntlworld.com 1 July 2008

  5. My Philosophy • That people know what they need • The social model of disability – Designers need to get alongside people on the neuro-diverse continuum to understand their culture and how they perceive the world. Presentation Autscape Conference Sarah.Clemerson@ntlworld.com 1 July 2008

  8. Findings - Design Criteria • Reduce design to its essentials in terms of both form and function. • Use amorphous forms • If pattern must be used make sure it is symmetrical • Use simplified, familiar forms, for equipment and furnishings that unambiguously indicate the item’s function. • Use natural elements and materials wherever possible • Have a dual purpose retreat area, where the internal environment can be controlled by the user. • Have a choice of environments to cater for both hyper and hyposensitivity. • Have intermediate areas between main areas • Reduce as far as possible sudden noises and visual clutter Presentation Autscape Conference Sarah.Clemerson@ntlworld.com 1 July 2008

  11. Main Adaptations • Simplify the space to its essentials • Use recognisable forms and materials • Screen out or distract from noise and visual clutter from surrounding houses and roads • Provide a variety of areas where residents could either be alone or mix with others.

  24. The Way Forward • Contact local planning departments, Local Councillors, Member of Parliament. Be specific about you needs and speak in relation to a specific place as it relates to you. • Accessibility Officers - become one - Association of Access Officers http://www.access-association.org.uk/ • Explanatory Notes to Planning And Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2004/en/ukpgaen_20040005_en_1 • Under this Act Statements of Community Involvement are required to be produced by ‘Regional Planning Bodies’. That is how they have involved you in the process. • Also amendments to the Act - Circular 01/06 (Communities and Local Government): Guidance on Changes to the Development Control System require ‘Design and Access Statements’ to be produced to say how they will meet the needs of groups with specific needs for each project. • UKPlanning http://www.ukplanning.com/ukp/index.htm you can access all local authority planning websites from this site and look at the planning documentation. • Human Rights Act • Disability Discrimination Act – Disability Equality Duty • Other people may have something to add - please do Presentation Autscape Conference Sarah.Clemerson@ntlworld.com 1 July 2008
