Walking distance

Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018. Defines waking distance as:

Where safe pedestrian routes take into account the physical limitations of those who may use them, for example providing steps appropriately supported by sloped access and dropped curbs positioned at crossing points. These routes and associated spaces are appropriately sized, with good visibility of the route ahead.

For more information see: Safe pedestrian route.
