Equality Act 2010 - Blaby District Council


Equality Act 2010

The Building Regulations 2010 (Part M) - Equality Act 2010

Part M sets out minimum requirements to ensure that a broad range of people are able to access and use facilities within buildings.

The Equality Act 2010 brings together and replaces existing equalities legislation, including the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA). The Equality Act requires reasonable adjustments to be made in relation to accessibility. In practice this means that due regard must be given to any specific needs of likely building users that might be reasonably met.

Compliance with the requirements of Part M does not signify compliance with the much broader obligations and duties set out in the Equality Act. This is often a source of frequent misunderstanding.
