Marcos Busurto-Castillon proposed a future discussion on disabled parking bay abuse, as had been implemented in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.


Jane Figg commented that she had not received an update on the use and roll out of the React system which reads aloud bus destinations from signs at the stops. Jane commented that she had been in contact with Phil Burke, but had not seen a progression in the software being rolled out across the borough, or any publicity about the feature. Jane had received support for the feature from people with visual impairments, and also those with learning disabilities and dementia.


Fiona Goodhand suggested that an orientation day might be arranged for those with visual impairments or learning disabilities to familiarise themselves with The Lexicon before opening. It was suggested that this could be raised with Simon Russian at the June meeting.


Isabel Mattick reported that she had asked Sainsburys, Bagshot Road to lower the height of the clothes peg in the disabled toilet to allow for undressing in necessary, but this had not yet been done.
