Access to Brent Civic Centre
It is good to see that Brent Council is now treating disabled access at the Civic Centre very seriously. Positive action to enhance disabled access beyond strict legal requirements will strike most people as common sense, especially for an authority that regards itself as forward. It also a change from the previous attitude which I blogged on at the time. In that case, an elderly person using crutches was told that they had to provide their own wheel chair, which caused significant avoidable discomfit to her. I was told that this decision was made at a political level and based on personal dislike of the individual. I am glad that a new approach is being taken.
