Accessibility planning

Accessibility planning is a way of working with other organisations to find and solve local accessibility problems, checking whether people can reach the services they need such as employment, education, healthcare, food shopping and leisure facilities, and identifying action to take if they cannot. The development of this work is set out in the Greater Nottingham Accessibility Strategy and the North Nottinghamshire Accessibility Strategy.

Accessibility Strategies were an integral part of the second round of Local Transport Plans covering the period 2006/07 to 2010/11. As part of the third round of Local Transport Plans, covering the period 2011/12 to 2025/26 the Accessibility Strategies will be updated.

Greater Nottingham Accessibility Strategy

The Greater Nottingham Accessibility Strategy was jointly developed by Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham City Council and covers Nottingham City and the boroughs of Broxtowe, Gedling and Rushcliffe together with Hucknall (situated within the Ashfield district).

Beacon award

In 2008/2009 we were awarded Beacon status for improving accessibility, jointly with Nottingham City Council, building upon our previous Beacon status in Better Access and Mobility received in 2002. The award recognised our consultation processes like Local Accessibility Transport Studies, our partnership working on schemes which contribute positively to the local area including Wheels to Work and the Shopping Scheme, as well as our strong track record of developing and implementing major public transport projects such as Robin Hood Airport Lynx, Retford Bus Station and the Nottingham Express Transit (NET) tram service.
