Persons with limited motor or orientation ability have more difficulties than others in moving or staying outside their own home. When planning the vicinity of dwellings special attention must be paid to these persons. This report states the most important functional requirements of the vicinity from disabled persons' point of view. The questions concerned are free areas for outdoor activities, footpaths, steps, ramps, roads and pedestrian crossings, parking places and garages. Examples of good solutions are shown in photos and sketches. (TRRL)
