Research Survey about Part M of the Building Regulations (Access to and use of buildings). 

This survey aims to collect views and experiences of disabled people and people with long-term mental and physical health conditions, to understand what barriers you experience when visiting places outside your home (such as shops, offices, libraries and sports centres). All the questions relate to any buildings that are not your home or someone else's home.

They are keen to get feedback from people with vertigo and balance issues as they can be affected by the built environment, but are often missed in research of this kind.

This is an opportunity for you to tell us about barriers you experience in the built environment. The focus of the study is England, so we are keen to hear about using spaces in England only. You can include any experience you have had in your life time.

The survey was created by Arup, and the overall research study is funded by MHCLG (the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government). The ultimate aim of the research is to collect data to inform an update to Part M of the Building Regulations, making buildings and spaces more accessible and inclusive.
