Universal Design Walkability Audit Tool
Cover of NTA Universal Design Walkability Audit Tool Report
The 2021 National Transport Authority Universal Design Walkability Audit Tool can be used to capture the existing conditions of a specified walking route in relation to its walkability. Walkability is the extent to which the built environment is friendly to the presence of people walking, living, shopping, visiting, engaging or spending time in an area. The Audit is intended to be carried out by a wide range of people of various ages and abilities including disability and older people’s organisations, advocacy organisations, school travel planners, members of the public and Local Authority officers.
Audits will typically be carried out by a group of participants, working with a trained coordinator, such as those engaged with the Age Friendly Ireland or the Green-Schools Travel programmes.
