Has a Grand Father clause been considered/already implemented in terms of town building planning? This is when in some situations an old rule continues to apply while a new rule will apply to future situations. I think of what happened in Japan. With all the trouble they had with the earthquakes they needed to upgrade the buildings to cope with seismic activity. What they said is when you rebuild you must upgrade to code but existing properties do not need to because of the cost. Our buildings are not going to be destroyed in an earthquake but over time it seems reasonable that when amendments and new builds are made that being accessible to the disabled is enabled. There has been good work done by the St Peter Port Douzaine. They are altering their premises and will be becoming disability accessible. Didn't they also just put in a ramp instead of steps out side the Albion? It was fitting with the area and cost appropriate. I think they did a lovely job. I don't see why anyone would object to further adjustments like those being made. I think these types of adjustments are those that could be focused on for improving town for disabled people. I really hope to see them being made and being worked on.
