Spain has launched a new law to ensure that disabled people have equal access to public spaces.
The Order aims to ensure, “The real effectiveness of universal accessibility and the right to equal opportunities and treatment for all people in public spaces that they enjoy as citizens.”
“To do this, it introduces rules to make them as understandable, usable and practicable as possible, in conditions of safety and comfort and in the most independent and natural way possible,” the government said.
“The entry into force of the Order will undoubtedly have a positive impact on urban quality, good design and the recovery of public spaces for all people and especially for those who suffer some type of disability, be it permanent or temporary,” the government added.
