P-05-993 Make retail in Wales fully accessible to disabled people, Correspondence – Petitioner to Committee 09.09.20


The restrictions disabled people face are still happening 6 months on from Covid. Disabled bays being used for queues, assistance not being made available for those who need it in store and One way systems which blind people can not navigate, service dog owners are being refused entry into establishments and outdoor seating clutters pavements (even if the road is pedestrianised that’s not use to service dogs and wheelchair users)


The equalities commission published materials last week on the equality act and how stores need to adhere to it. Although it only need a week no changes have happened, and it’s 6 months on this should have come out sooner and business still have no clue.


Kind regards,
