Finding properties with potential for accessible living
McEwan Fraser Legal has taken the first steps in making the search for accessible living easier by creating the ‘PAL’ (Potential for Accessible Living) logo adding an accessible living feature to its search system. We have also provided feedback to Capability Scotland on posters they have produced in partnership with the Glasgow Centre for Inclusive Living (GCIL) to improve design guidance for private housing and the public realm. The posters give recommended minimum space requirements, dimensions and symbolisation for both barrier-free housing and fully wheelchair accessible housing and we will make them available to anyone who is thinking about purchasing a property that they intend to adapt.
Going forward we hope that other estate agents will follow suit and really help make finding accessible living easier for everyone in Scotland who needs it.For more information look at our blog on PAL
