The County Council has a legal obligation under the Equalities Act 2010 to accommodate staff and visitors with disabilities.


A programme of works will be carried out at County Hall Chichester, Durban House Bognor Regis, County Hall North Horsham and Crawley library offices to ensure compliance and enhanced public duty.  Pending a possible change to the status of Centenary House, Durrington, works there will be limited to those that are the most critical in the short term.





The Cabinet Member has endorsed works to be carried out on Council buildings as detailed in paragraph 2.1 in the report and which are needed following an audit of compliance with accessibility requirements at the estimated value of £2.2m over four years beginning in 2020/21.
