Question 37: Do you have any other general and further comments on this document?

Representation ID: 2466

Received: 01/03/2016

Respondent: National Federation for the Blind

Representation Summary:

When considering any of this plan you must take in to account your responsibilities under the Equality Act.
With the numbers of elderly and disabled people that will live in Southend during the next ten years I do not think you have taken enough account of it. No listed Sheltered housing, no day centre facilities for disabled people, no parking for disabled people, no facilities for guide dog owners or other assistance dogs, no public toilets.
The maps referred to were not explained on the cd so I could not comment on them.
There were many references to your Website which I and many other blind people do not have access to.
