Disabled and/or elderly people can be disproportionately affected by, for example, the closure of facilities such as public toilets. The vandals end up winning, and toilets are closed to prevent criminal damage, drug-taking or anti-social behaviour. I would like to see stand-alone, wheelchair accessible toilets that can be opened with a swipe card, key or unique code. These can be self-cleaning. If we get the right design, they could even enhance the street scene rather than detract from it.
I realise this is one tiny suggestion for what could be a massive project, but I hope it’s worth considering.
