York Council ‘Breaching Human Rights’ Over ‘Devastating’ Footstreets Ruling

From YorkMix.

Campaigners claim that City of York Council are breaching their legal duty to equality over the decision to expand the footstreets scheme.

An umbrella group, Local Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs), is formally objecting to the footstreet extensions being made permanent.

They cite the Equality Act 2010 in saying that the temporary extensions have disproportionately discriminated against disabled people and the decision is in breach of the council’s public sector equality duty.
