DESCRIPTION

BS 8300-1:2018


This standard BS 8300-1:2018 Design of an accessible and inclusive built environment is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 91.140.01 Installations in buildings in general
  • 91.040.01 Buildings in general
  • 11.180.99 Other standards related to aids for disabled and handicapped people

This part of BS 8300 gives recommendations for the design of the external built environment, including the approaches to buildings, to accommodate users with the widest range of characteristics and capabilities. It applies to:

  1. key external features within the curtilage of or associated with a building or group of buildings, such as parking provision, setting‑down points, access routes to and around buildings, and the approaches of entrances to buildings;

    NOTE 1 The recommendations in this part of BS 8300 mainly cover access in the external environment and the approaches to buildings. The standard makes reference to design of internal environments but the main recommendations for design of internal environments are given in BS 8300‑2.

  2. other aspects of the external environment such as street design, landscaping, way‑finding and information, horizontal and vertical movement, and public facilities.

The recommendations given in this part of BS 8300 apply largely to new developments, but can also be used when assessing the accessibility and usability of the existing external environment and, where practicable, as a basis for its improvement. The extent to which the recommendations apply to scheduled monuments, registered parks and gardens, registered battlefields and conservation areas is determined on a case‑by‑case basis.

NOTE 2 This part of BS 8300 does not give recommendations for the management and maintenance of external environments, but a list of issues to be considered is given in Annex A.

This part of BS 8300 does not apply to individual dwellings.

NOTE 3 Individual dwellings are covered by BS 9266.
