Following on from the Landscape Institute’s (LI) support of the BEPE Project  (the government’s Paralympic Legacy Built Environment Professional Education Project) landscape architects are being encourage to take a lead professional role in the design of accessible and inclusive environments.

They are doing this by:

·         design that helps to make the journeys people make and their use of streets and external space safe, accessible, easy, less challenging and more interesting;

  • understanding the issues from the perspective of a diversity of users through talking to the people most affected;
  • being aware of what makes places better for everyone to use;
  • applying inclusive design principles at each LI/RIBA work stage;
  • being aware of the legislation, government policy, and technical standards in relation to inclusive design; and
  • reviewing some of the most useful guidance, learning from award winning case studies and implementing best practice.
