National Condition

It is a condition that clear routes of access along the highway must be maintained, taking into account the needs of disabled people, and the recommended minimum footway widths and distances required for access by mobility impaired and visually impaired people as set out in Section 3.1 of Inclusive Mobility.

3.1 Widths

A clear width of 2,000mm allows two wheelchairs to pass one another comfortably. This should be regarded as the minimum under normal circumstances. Where this is not possible because of physical constraints 1,500mm could be regarded as the minimum acceptable under most circumstances, giving sufficient space for a wheelchair user and a walker to pass one another. The absolute minimum, where there is an obstacle, should be 1,000mm clear space. The maximum length of restricted width should be six metres (see also Section 8.3). If there are local restrictions or obstacles causing this sort of reduction in width they should be grouped in a logical and regular pattern to assist visually impaired people. It is also recommended that there should be minimum widths of 3,000mm at bus stops and 3,500mm to 4,500mm by shops though it is recognized that available space will not always be sufficient to achieve these dimensions. Where a cycle track runs alongside a footway or a footpath, best practice is to physically segregate the two as advocated in Local Transport Note (LTN) 2/86 Shared Use by Cyclists and Pedestrians. If this is not possible, appropriate tactile surfaces should be used to identify the cycle and pedestrian paths (see Section 4.5). The cycle track should be at least 1,400mm wide with the cycle symbol on the ground every 50 yards. The pedestrian part should meet the standards given earlier in this section and should be separated from the cycle track by a raised dividing line 150mm wide and 12 to 20mm high, with a 50mm wide top face.

The council may, by service of a notice in writing on the licence holder or owner of the premises, revoke the licence forthwith:

  • in an emergency or in the event that the council considers the exercise of the licence causes a substantial and unreasonable obstruction of the right of the public to pass or repass on the public highway.
  • if any condition of this licence is broken.
  • if the council considers it to be necessary in connection with the exercise of any of its functions or the functions of any statutory undertaker or public utility.
  • for any other reasonable cause.
