Think you have missed the point of disability discrimination Law and a reasonable adjustment made within a planning regulation. It isn't an equal society, being disabled means you can't do things other people take for granted. Where a refused planning application may be disappointing and inconvenient to an able bodied person, they would have the choice to live with it or move. A disabled person may have no choice and be forced to move, and they would be restricted in their choice of property because of their disability. Disabled people don't ask for special treatment they ask for a a level playing field. That means people like planning departments taking need into account when making decisions.
