Particularly in this warm weather it’s nice to have seats outside. It’s also tempting to put out A-boards, sail banners and other promotional signs on the pavement.
If you do, as well as bearing in mind any Council regulations, please spare a thought for problems these may cause to your customers and others using the pavements.
Anyone using a wheelchair, or with a pram, buggy/pushchair, or who has sight loss, with or without an assistance dog, can find all this pavement clutter a real problem — and sometimes extremely dangerous, not just a nuisance.
So please be considerate to people with accessibility needs!
