About Us

Adur Access and Mobility Group was established in 2011, and has adopted a constitution. Its aims are to:

  • Promote awareness of any and all physical and other barriers to social inclusion.
  • Promote equal access for all to shops, services and facilities.
  • Work with statutory authorities, businesses and other agencies as appropriate to improve access for all.
  • Liaise with Adur D.C., West Sussex CC and others regarding the planning and building control regulations as applied to new developments.

The group now meets on demand, by e-mail, and Martin Osment runs a street Surgery, to coincide with the Shoreham Farmers Market, on the second Saturday of each month. from 10.30 am to 12.00. The nearby Shoreham Centre, Pond Road, Shoreham-by-Sea. BN43 5WU has a cafe, disabled toilet, level access and good parking. It is currently supported by Adur Voluntary Action and Adur District Council.

In 2011, the Group was awarded funding from the Big Lottery “Awards for All” grants scheme to develop a website which makes information about access to Adur premises available on-line. This builds on work already begun by Adur District Councillors Liza McKinney, Rod Hotton and Peter Metcalfe, as well as staff, including Mark Lowe, and reported in “Is Adur District a Disability-Friendly Place?”, available here: http://www.adur.gov.uk/docs/equalities-diversity/adur-disability-review.pdf

The group has a membership of about a dozen organisations and individuals, and welcomes further members. Our current priorities are:

  • To complete, launch and promote our access website
  • To monitor planning applications and make recommendations
  • To prepare and launch an awards scheme recognising good practice
  • To work to keep disability issues in the public mind, and comment on topical matters
