Disabled Access In Manchester
Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England with a rich industrial heritage. The Castlefield conservation area’s 18th-century canal system recalls the city’s days as a textile powerhouse, and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry. The revitalised Salford Quays dockyards now house the Daniel Libeskind-designed Imperial War Museum North and the Lowry cultural centre.
Manchester City Council's vision was set out in their Access 2000 strategy. This vision was that Manchester should be the most accessible city in Europe.
However, many of Manchesters buildings are listed by English Heritage and therefore this makes it incredibly difficult to get disabled access approved. Manchester has fifteen Grade I listed buildings and 77 Grade II* listed buildings.
Sesame Access have the solution for this problem and have worked with many clients who have struggled with getting planing permission for disabled access from the planning office.
Our bespoke lifts are unique to each building and therefore can work with the aesthetics of a building to ensure it looks invisible and seamless.
We also work closely with the planning office to ensure it meets all requirements and will be the perfect fit for your building.
